The 85 metre Oceanco built motor
yacht Vibrant Curiosity dry-docked with
Babcock in October 2016 for underwater
hull repairs and preservation, and for
inspection of underwater equipment
including; propeller shaft and rudders;
hull anodes; anchor chains and lockers.
To remove any risk of contaminating the
yacht’s topsides and superstructure whilst
spraying the required Intersleek 1100SR
antifoul coating system, the underwater
area was encapsulated using scaffold
and shrink-wrap. The encapsulation, hull
repairs and coating preparation and
application was completed within a 29
day dry-dock period.
