Know More: Survey Report

We spoke to Roy A. Newberry Jr. of Newberry and Associates in Seabrook, Texas, and here’s what he said about the Carver 560 Voyager:

“The tinted windows around the helm mean nighttime visibility was greatly reduced. That might be good for the air conditioning part to keep the heat out but it’s not worth much for navigating at night or in restricted visibility.”

“They have probably fewer blisters than most of the other manufacturers. But they’re not immune to blisters and I don’t think any fiberglass boat is immune to blisters. If it’s handmade you’re going to get impurities in that laminate at times, and you're going to have a blister. Nothing major; nothing chronic.”

“My liability exposure as a surveyor on those boats is pretty low, because of the accessibility of everything. I was able to check everything. Things are easy to get to, it’s easier to get around the motors, easier to get around the generators, easier to get into the floors.”
