Simply put - "No cash, No splash".
In other words, 100% of the fees plus estimated expenses on the day of the survey - no exceptions.
No verbal or written report will be made without payment.

the Limitations and Exclusions hereto.
(B) Data Protection
The recipient's name, personal data and other information given in this report and all details of the vessel reported herein are the
intellectual property of Kim Skov-Nielsen and these documents contain confidential information which is legally privileged and is
intended for use of the addressee only. All information contained herein is covered by the EU data Protection Directive (95/46/EC)
The report, the international Copyright A of which is vested and remains the property of Kim Skov-Nielsen, is personal and confidential
to the named client, is non-transferable, applies to the addressee only and must not be copied, re-produced, kept in any bank, stored in
any retrieval system or transmitted in any form or by any means whatsoever or sold to any third party without the prior written consent
of the copyright holder. Such unauthorised transfer of either the whole or part of this report would be regarded as a breach of
copyright and the EU Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC).
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information presented in the report it must be clearly understood that
is must NOT be construed as a guarantee or warranty as to the condition of the subject vessel if she is sold or transferred to a third
party and no duty of care is allowed to any such third party. The report is issued without prejudice and in uberrimae fidei as a
statement of facts ascertained at the time of the survey during which due diligence and reasonable skill were exercised and reasonable
care was taken using common professional practise and, where available guidelines or Codes of Practice such as and including those
published by the International Institute of Marine Surveyors and The Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors.
(E) Guarantee and/or Warranty
The report does not constitute either a guarantee or warranty as to the condition of parts it was not, for any reason whatsoever,
possible to see at the time of the survey nor it does not follow that each and every defect was found during the inspection. No
responsibility will be accepted for any faults, defects or changes subsequently arising. No guarantee against faulty design or latent
defects is expressly stated or implied nor is any guarantee given that the vessel is suitable for any particular purpose.
This term has never been defined in English Law and I specifically draw your attention to the fact that, legally, in addition to the
structural and mechanical items in this reported upon herein, the term 'seaworthy' also encompasses a number of items clearly outside
the scope of a general condition survey and therefore, not within the purview of the surveyor and is solely the Owner's responsibility
to warrant such other 'Seaworthiness items' to any Insurance Underwriter as required by the terms of the Insurance Contract under 1906
Marine Insurance Act.
