USCGC PEA ISLAND Drydock, Day 51

Work is progressing on the Pea Island’s dry dock, now less than 3 weeks from the finish date.  Most of the hull has been blasted, and the re-installation of the engine room is underway.

Port side of the cutter, with the 1st coat of anti corrosive paint on the hull. Some of the areas are still covered for blasting. The grit from blasting gets everywhere, making a big mess of the yard.
The starboard side of the ship, with the rudders and fin stabilizers hanging and ready to be installed.
All the large machinery has been installed in the engine room, and the piping systems are being fitted to the machinery. The hole in the hull is to fit the new main engine exhaust piping.
