Masterman docks in Troon for Intermediate Survey
The Masterman, a UK coastal tug working from the port of Belfast, made the journey from the Irish Sea to Troon for an intermediate survey and general repairs. The vessel underwent full hull preparation and paintwork. All engine room coolers were opened and cleaned and new sea water cooling bypass lines were installed for both generators.
Further work carried out to the vessel involved the removal of all ship side valves and main propulsion rope guards for survey, replacement of the tugs hull anodes and the opening of the intermediate shaft bearings for survey. The dry docking was completed on time and the vessel was back in service to schedule.
