The proper planning process of a dry-docking should entail a pre-docking paint survey.
During the survey we will perform inspection of all accessible tanks and exterior areas. The inspection will result in a comprehensive report. The report will give the superintendent a detailed “picture” of the condition of the inspected areas, with accurate extent, degree of breakdown and professional suggestions to surface treatment.
The report will serve as the guideline during initial owner/yard scope of work discussions, thereby ensure that no change orders or extra cost will occur during the dry-docking.
