Divers replaced a four-foot Impress Current Cathodic Protection Anode on a Navy Ship in accordance with NAVSEA UWSHM Chap-19 “Cathodic Protection Systems”.  As a qualified contractor for the U.S. Navy, Seaward Marine Services is required to meet stringent NAVSEA Director of Ocean Engineering Supervisor of Salvage and Diving requirements.  The anode was found to be inactive and damaged during August 13 inspections and scheduled to be replaced by the SEA 00C representative, Seaward divers started repairs August 20 and completing repairs the following day.  After the initial installation and operational test by Ships Force, divers used HYCOTE 461 to replace the insulating dielectric shielding that was removed when replacing the anode.
