As seafarers, we tend to avoid dry docking operations of ships for several reasons. Many are even intimated by the complexity and tediousness of the task.
In spite of being a great learning experience, seafarers are a bit repulsive to dry docks because:
- It’s a complicated task
- Mentally and physically stressful
- Loads of work with limited resting hours
- Several checks and maintenance works carried out
- Frequent visits of surveyors, superintendents and shore technicians
- Hazardous working environment and lack of personal safety
And the list goes on…
Considering all the issues faced by seafarers in a dry dock, we are introducing a new resource to provide solutions to some of the common problems related to dry docking procedures.
Marine Insight is proud to launch the new ebook – A Guide to Master Dry Dock Operations for Engine Room Department to help mariners know and understand the dry docking procedures in the ship’s engine room, by providing them a step-by-step and to-the-point guide which will explain different types of jobs carried out in the ship engine room and ways to approach them.
Learn about pre-planning, preparation, docking, undocking, and sea trials of ships in dry dock.
