Capt. G.W. Full & Associates, Inc., on many occasions, has been contracted to oversee major restoration projects. In this capacity the surveyor works with the repair yard and the owner. As the restoration calls for various areas of the vessel to be opened up, the surveyor will go in and inspect these uncovered areas to determine the repairs needed. On many occasions, the full depth of the repairs cannot be determined until these areas are opened up. As the vessel is restored, the repairs are reviewed with the repair yard and the owner so there are no questions as to what is needed to be done. At the end of the project, a full report is written detailing the extent of the restoration and what was undertaken.
