Exploring the Importance of Vessel Hull Coatings

Vessel hull coatings are a vital component in the maritime world. In this blog, we will dive deep into the world of hull coatings, exploring their significance, types, and the numerous advantages they bring to the maritime industry. Additionally, we will highlight the importance of proper coating assessments and inspections.

The Hull Coating’s Role

The hull of a ship is its first line of defence against the corrosive forces of the sea and hull coatings are the protective shield that keeps it intact.

Hull coatings is applicable for all vessel types and ages, with re-coating being carried out generally every fifth year (during dry dock).

With an expected price tag ranging from US$30,000 to US$500,000, this equates to a very costly paint job!

RUDDERS – Why Are They Important?

What is a Rudder?

As with other types of vehicles moving through a medium, a ship relies on its rudder, and in a broader sense, its entire steering gear assembly, to navigate to its destination.

In essence, a rudder is a flat blade, mounted at the stern of a vessel behind the propeller, which redirects seawater past the vessel’s hull while in motion, thus directing the path of the ship.  

It’s a basic concept, but, as you will find in this article, its importance is quite fascinating!
