Coast Guard Cleans Up The Sea

SEATTLE - The Coast Guard Cutter Polar Sea sits in dry-dock completely stripped of its bright red color while crew members and contractors conduct maintenance here July 11. The Polar Sea went into dry-dock at Todd's Shipyard in early June 2007 and is not scheduled to leave until late August or early September. Highlights of the Polar Sea's shipyard availability include sandblasting and complete repainting of the hull and superstructure, major engine overhauls on all six diesel engines and three main gas turbine engines, removal of all three propeller blades and hubs, complete shut-down and replacement of the ship's sewage and water piping systems and a total overhaul of the ship's galley.
