Docks inspected are considered another structure and added to the report for your convenience. Whether it is a fixed or floating dock for boats or drive on for Personal Water Craft, every dock can be inspected as long as access can be obtained.
Davits are essentially 'marine cranes' that are mounted on their own concrete base or in the case of this system, secured to posts. Davits are inspected for excessive corrosion and serviceability if operational at the time of the inspection. If you are considering a property with a Davit, please specify this when discussing the inspection so every attempt to fully inspect can be taken.

All wooden seawalls will deteriorate over time... Mother Nature always decides how long they will last. If there is a Seawall on a property you are considering buying, ensure you ask for it to be inspected to ensure you know before you buy.
Seawalls will not last forever and when they fail it will be costly to repair.
This type of failure will happen without proper maintenance and an inspection will save thousands if caught in time.
