UNDERWATER INSPECTION REPORT

On the vertical sides, above the 2nd part of the STBD bilge keel one indentation was observed (with dimensions: 6m length x 2m width x 3mm depth). All layers of paint coating are missing. Rests were found with no abnormalities. On the curves from the beginning of the first part of the STBD bilge keel and for approx. 20 meters towards fore area, with width 2 meters, there were observed scratches .All layers of paint coating were missing including the primer coating. On the port curve – under the second part of the bilge keel, indentation was observed (with dimensions 1m x 0.3m x 3mm). Paint coating was missing.

On the flat bottom, minor Scratches on the antifouling layer were observed on the first plate of the STBD side of the flat bottom which are located across all the length of the STBD bilge keels and with width approx. 2 meters. Minor scratches on the antifouling layer were also observed on the first plate of the port side of the flat bottom; which they start from the ending of the port bilge keel and for 20meters towards stern area.  No indentation was observed. Generally no other abnormalities were observed; shell plating, welded seams and butts without deformations or signs of pitting were observed. Deterioration on all layers of hull paint coating are calculated approx. 50-52 m².

Hull paint coating found with deterioration only on the antifouling layers approx. 150-160  m². Except for the aforementioned deficiencies the rest was found in very good condition. All grids were in position including bolts and nuts with securing arrangement. No abnormalities were observed. Fishnets were found entangled on one gratings on the port side which were cut off and removed. Four bladed fixed propeller was found in good condition.

Bilge keels on the STBD side: Upwards bending was observed on the first part of the bilge keel. Downwards bending was observed on the second part of the bilge keel.  On the port side: Waving bending was observed on the first and on the sixth part of the bilge keel. On the first part of port bilge keel, one anode was hanging on one screw.
Rest bilge keels were found with no abnormalities. All Weld joints found in good condition. Rudder was found in good condition. Tail-shaft/rope-guard was found in good condition.
