Non-Destructive Marine Moisture Detector

Skipper Plus Moisture Meter

The Tramex Skipper Plus is an upgraded version of the world's best known and successful non-destructive moisture meter for boats, the Tramex Skipper.

Moisture can cause peeling and blistering of applied finishes and treatments, newly applied finishes can fail prematurely if the wood it is applied to is not sufficiently dry. Hidden or trapped moisture can lead to mold and biological growth.

The Skipper Plus can be moved across the surface of the boat to moisture survey in a fast and thorough manner, detecting moisture non-destructively through paint and coatings on wood up to a depth of 1.25". The Skipper Plus can also be used to detect leaks and trace them to source both above and below decks.

  • Three measurement ranges optimized for testing of different materials such as hardwood, GRP and surface moisture
  • Deep signal penetration to detect elevated moisture through most covering and coating materials and deep into the core of composite hulls without having to damage or puncture the material being tested
  • External rubber electrodes in direct contact with material being tested for best sensitivity, repeatability and greater depth of signal penetration
  • Wide range of readings for wood of 5 to 30% on hardwood scale and 0 to 100 on comparative scale for GRP and other materials
  • Large, clear, easy to read display giving meaningful readings
  • Hold function enables user to "freeze" the reading, useful when taking readings in awkward places where the meter face may not be visible
  • High moisture audio warning tone that can be switched on or off
  • Automatic power cutoff switches "Off" when not in use to save Battery
