I would appreciate if you could advice me about an ultrasonic
thickness gage. I want to use it for calibration for steel plates of
fishing vessels.

We need to know about a manufacturer of a reliable and cheap
ultrasonic thickness gage.

Kind regards,

Carlos Peralta

If you just need to gauge and log thicknesses, one of these is a good certified
commercial unit.

If you only need this for the one vessel, you should be able to rent a unit
from a outfit in you area. Before I retired, we would rent such equipment
but I don't remember the name of the company. It just required some phone
calls.

Carlos, contact NDT International in Pennsylvania:

They have many testers that will fit your needs....

Cheap is a relative term.  Reliable and cheap are, normally, opposite
terms....just like in boats.

He could look in his phone book under "Non Destructive Testing"

Just I need to gauge and log thickness, but for many vessels along the year.
