LONG-TERM SHIP HULL PROTECTION-AN INTEGRAL APPROACH TO COATING ECONOMY
Within a few years in-water maintenance may become a necessity for VLCC. A comparison is made between present drydocking practice and in-water maintenance showing that the latter is economically feasible and even offers technical advantages over low-quality current drydocking procedure, and demonstrating that investing in modern paint systems is very economical. A suggestion for an integral protection and maintenance scheme for the submerged area of the ship is given.
