Ultrasonic Boat Testing
BoatWiki - Definitions
Ultrasonic testing in boating terms can be defined as a system for using sound waves to detect for thickness, voids, corrosion and defects in a vessel's structure.
This type of inspection can be used on structural components such as hulls, decks, and super structures. It is available for fiberglass and metal construction, but does not apply to wooden boats.
Ultrasonic testing is employed regularly by surveyors for boats ranging form small recreational craft to large ships.
Boat purchasers and owners should consult with a qualified marine surveyor to determine the need for ultrasonic testing.
