On the Dry Dock, Aug. 2001

N. Schultheiss

In Early August, 2001 the Saginaw was placed in the dry dock at the Toledo Shiprepair in Toledo, Oh. The vessel was in for her 5-year survey and replacement of stern seals. A few crew members remained on board the Saginaw and were working on various projects inside the ship.

Before a ship arrives, blocks are placed in the dock according to the vessel blue prints, these block keep the vessel from resting on the bottom of the dry dock and give crews access to the bottom of the vessel.
