Make sure your certification is up to date and get your vessel inspected in time, because too late already means re-certification with major modifications to your vessel.

Cost inspection

If you want to know the cost of an inspection on board, please check further under rates.

Mast and rigging

In commercial shipping, the requirement is for mast and rigging to be inspected every 2.5 years. Every 5 years, the mast (wood and steel) must be presented ashore for inspection. Upon approval of the inspection, the ship is issued a proof of rigging that is legally valid.

As a mast & rigging inspector, I am affiliated to the NBKB with which I work and from which a Certificate of Rigging comes.

Due to the suspension of the NBKB, which was lifted on 15 February, causing a backlog of inspections within the NBKB, no inspections relating to the issue of Proof of Rigging are currently taking place.

If you have any doubts or if your certificate is due to expire soon, please feel free to contact me.

Hull inspection

With a steel vessel, the first step is always to tap the vessel to discover any weak or suspicious spots.

Also on the inside, the state of the ship is examined as closely as possible. Namely corrosion… This almost always comes from inside.

After that, the thickness of the steel or iron is measured with an ultrasonic measuring instrument

Gas approval for residential and pleasure craft

Sad but true, accidents involving gas on board pleasure boats continue to cause casualties. explosion, fire and carbon monoxide poisoning cause casualties, sometimes fatal, every year.

Het is dan ook van belang dat uw Gasinstallaties veilig is en op een deugdelijke wijze aangelegd is en zodoende gekeurd wordt.

Heb een tjalk gekocht onder toezicht van Rob en heb tijdens de inspectie erg veel geleerd van hem. Super blij mee.

Dankzij de expertise van Rob zijn we er achter gekomen dat onze mast van binnen uit aan het wegrotten was. Dit heeft ons een hoop ellende bespaard.
