Marine Transport Lines Inc. requested Divers to support the TURBO activation of USNS CAPE EDMONT (AKR-5069).  The CAPE EDMONT is part of the National Defense Reserve Fleet in Charleston, SC and must periodically “reactivate” to access the crew and ship's readiness.  Seaward Divers mobilized to Charleston, SC and completed hull cleaning utilizing Seawards SCAMP multi-brush cleaning platform.  The Divers also completed the propeller polish, cleaning of the shaft, rudder, sea-chests, bilge keels, and the bow and stern thrusters on the 682’ ship within 24 hours of diving.  For all the hard work and long days, a job well done for the Divers and Crew of Seaward Mobile Unit One.
