6/29 - Portable Coffer Dam in Erie, Pa.  - Hugh Gillett
Around the middle of June the Presque Isle was in Erie Pa. to have the Stbd seal replaced. This is the first time I have seen this portable cofferdam used. Instead of dry docking the whole vessel this Portable cofferdam was flooded, maneuvered into place and  pumped out. Work could then be done as if in dry dock. By the looks of this piece of equipment it must be for the Presque Isle only. portable-001.jpg (76376 bytes)
End of cofferdam that would be under the stern.
