This feature on hull maintenance contains the following articles: "Improving Cathodic Protection," which explains a new technique that is able to evaluate the protection afforded by existing impressed- current cathodic protection systems and determine the most effective systems for new ships; "Maintaining Hull Integrity," which discusses the seriousness of the problem of corrosion attack in ballast tanks, particularly for older vessels, and what measures can be taken to prevent it; "Hull Care: the Operator's Strategy," which looks at how curtailment of the use of tin-releasing, self-polishing antifouling coatings appears to mean shorter intervals between drydockings and more visits to hull cleaners; "Easing Fuel Costs with Hull Cleaning," which deals with the way in which hull roughness and smoothness affect fuel consumption; and "Polishing Up Prop Performance," which deals with various ways of improving propeller performance, including in-water polishing and a propeller condition monitoring program.
