Do not buy a FC boat! This one was built in 1902 and about to fall apart any day now.
Inspecting a FC is really quite easy. Where I live all new high rises are built of reinforced concrete. During the building process the quality of concrete is constantly tested, how do they do it? There are quite a number of companies here that go from job site to job and basically x-ray concrete to see what going on, it's pretty routine. The good thing about this is that none of these companies have the word "marine" in their name - thus saving you big bucks
So you if see a FC boat that you like, don't bother with some clueless "surveyor", hire real concrete testing professionals, it will save you tons of money
. Here is something really important - commercial
concrete testers can provide you with all types of data and certificates
that you can bring to an insurance
company to prove the soundness of the hull
