Having worked closely with the US Coast Guard program for factory visits I strongly disagree. In the first place they are not inspections. They are factory visits. The entire purpose is to help the manufacturer comply. The civilian contract employees have no enforcement authority whatsoever and they are not marine surveyors. . They can only report to the Coast Guard what they find. Also they can only look at those things that are required by some Federal regulation, If the boat is only required by law to have a Hull Identification number then that is all they are allowed to look for. If the boat has to meet fuel system or electrical systems then they look at those things and only the things required by law. They are not allowed to look for things that are not covered by a law, such as hull construction. Calling the contractor a jerk is beyond rude, it is just plain insulting, and he is dead wrong about the Coast Guard testing for flotation and capacity. I used to run the program. Boats are purchased or volunteered by a manufacturer to be tested. But the Coast Guard does not waste taxpayer money on boats they know will pass. They look for boats that may fail. This does not include, of course, new models volunteered for testing by a manufacturer. The whole point is get boats corrected before they are sold to the public. or to find boats being sold that need to be corrected.
