Seaward Marine M/V COASTAL PRIDE divers performed a cleaning and ABS Underwater Inspection in Lieu of Drydocking (UWILD) of the dry dock SPEEDE. A UWILD is an alternative to dry-docking inspection and is carried out by an ABS approved diver under the watch of an attending surveyor, it includes all items normally examined if the vessel were dry-docked. Specific frame areas of the hull along with the 12 ballast inlet sea chests and 3 firemain seachests were cleaned and inspected as directed by the ABS inspector. All work was monitored topside through closed circuit video. The inspection was documented on the Divers Hull Inspection Data report (DHID) along with video recording of conditions of the underwater hull. 

SPEEDE is the only ABS and US NAVY certified dry dock on the East Coast and Seaward is proud to be a part of this evolution.
