I'm surprised no one mentioned a simple inspection
mirror. Cost about $3 in any automotive parts
BTW, if anyone wanted to use a multi-meter on my boat for a pre-survey they would be asked top leave. Since I have no idea of their electrical
knowledge other than their say so, it aint gonna happen.
Anyone other than a surveyor
coming on my boat with anything more than a flashlight, camera and inspection mirror would be asked to leave.
Why? What's to know? You turn on my radio
it either works or it don't. That's it - simple. I don't need anyone playing with my electrical system
Every older bought I have ever owned was always an electrical nightmare. The PO knew enough to eventually
get an appliance to work. Didn't mean he did it right.
My own pre-survey is just to see if the boat is even worth the a second look by a surveyor. A good visual inspection tells a lot.
Walking on a deck
with stocking feet tells a lot. I am not going to let an amateur start knocking with a hammer.
