The Interesting Side of Marine Surveying by Gene Thornton, SAMS® AMS®-E

Here is an article by Tom Benton about recent Piston Failures in Marine Engines.

Here is a pdf file all about Vessel Serial Numbers from the 60's to the present.   (You need the Acrobat Reader to view this)  It is posted with permission of Computer Boat Values, the definitive authority on boat values in the Canadian Market.  These are actual pages from their printed "Boat Value Guide". You can print them out - they are nicely formatted to insert in a three ring binder.

This company is owned by members of the Dawson family, who are now in their sixth generation in the boating industry in Ontario.   You might want to bookmark their web site in case you ever need a Canadian value for a boat.
