Whats a wrap? Wrapping a yacht is where the topsides are covered in vinyl. Looks pretty for a while but it can cause problems if left unchecked. Going along side and scrape the vinyl through to the gelcoat on the topsides often happens without detection. What this can do is trap water under the vinyl and gelcoat.How is it detected ? Harwood Marine Surveys uses thermal imaging to detect any problems that may arise. A Pogo 40 pre-purchase survey was carried out in October 2017 using the latest NDT techniques with the topsides being vinyl wrapped. Glad to say there were no issues and the yacht was good. Survey was carried out in Brittany , Port Du Crouesty France. Nice yard, nice marina, nice staff.
