Thermal Imaging

Is Thermal Imaging Necessary?

Thermal imaging in marine inspections is generally done to find anomalies. An anomaly is a term to describe something that deviates from what is normal or expected. Thermal anomalies may be caused by moisture ingress, delamination (disbonding), voids, or other defects.

Should I get Thermal Imaging on a Boat?
