Seaward Mobile Diving unit 4 mobilized on August 16, 2015 for an extended three city road trip which covered 1620 miles. During the three week excursion four vessels were cleaned and two were certified with an American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) Underwater Inspection In Lieu of Dry-Docking (UWILD). The TS State of Maine received a full underwater hull cleaning, ABS UWILD inspection, a Lamp Ray Hull Survey, and a Data Scan. The crew also cleaned and inspected the Maine Maritime Academy (MMA) Barge Oyster Bay. With the work in Castine, ME completed Mobile 4 demobilized and moved two hours south to Rockland ME for a full underwater hull cleaning and ABS UWILD inspection of the Giant Cement Companies Barge MBT-35. Upon completion of Barge MBT-35 the crew packed up and headed 350 miles farther south to Groton CT, the Submarine Capital of the World to provide services to the submarine community.

Matt O’Donnell, Port Engineer/Marine Surveyor with the United States Department of Transportation - Maritime Administration stated, “Tom, your crew did an excellent job. It was a pleasure working with such professionals.”

Capt. Dana Willis, Marine Operations Manager for the Maine Maritime Academy writes “Tom, Thanks for putting this whole operation together for us on short notice, and your entire crew was helpful and easy to work with through the project.”

Seaward Marine Services would like to commend the entire Mobile 4 dive crew and the Lamp Ray team for their professionalism and willingness to go where the work takes them on short notice. A job well done!
