  • a) "Tow" - Initial Survey with report and recommendations for Tow, repairs & preparation / longitudinal Strength calculations / trim and stability ( ballast) condition / voyage planning/ Tug & tow connections arrangement /Bollard Pull calculations & contingency planning.
  • b) "Tow" several follow up surveys to verify compliance with repairs & all recommendations.
  • c) "Tow" final survey for Certificate of Fitness to Tow for specific voyage.
  • d) Tug - Full Specification and Bollard Pull rating - review /approval.
  • e) Tug & Tow Connections, Main and Emergency bridles and gear certification approval.
  • f) Towage Manual { Tug Owners / Tugmaster } key document detailing voyage plan with contingency and weather routing with surveyors warranty recommendations and copy all relevant Certificates and contacts / reporting procedures - submission for approval.
