I am seeking quality photographs for inclusion in the 2nd Edition of the Handbook of Marine Surveying which will be published in the Reed Professional Series next year. This book is intended for professional marine surveyors and I am seeking assistance in obtaining original photos on any thing that might be of interest to a marine surveyor but in particular:
Stuffing box problems
Wire rope and terminal fitting failures of any sort
Proper photo attribution would be made in the book.
Thank you for any assistance,

Scarmari is a 1964 Brabant sloop designed by Alan Buchanan. The attached says most of it, but one for surveyors is fatigue in the transom due to the imposed loads from vane steering gear for which it was never designed. The pdf gives you the introduction and the separate photo shows a crescent of rust coming through the coating beneathe the steering gear attachments. If you need more don't hesitate to ask.
Regards, Stewart Willis.
Thanks for the photo
Thanks for the photograph, interesting problem indeed. If anyone else has an photograph of a failure of some sort, I would appreciate it. I can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
