Vessels Make Pit Stop At Bay Ship

Thursday, March 09, 2000
Traditionally Alaskan cruise vessels are known to make regular stopovers at Bay Ship & Yacht Co.'s Alameda, Calif. shipyard and drydock facility for routine maintenance and repairs. The yard has served as host to clients, such as Special Expedition Marine, which brought in its Sea Bird and Sea Lion vessels before reaching their winter destinations in either Mexico or the Caribbean. Yorktown Clipper, which is owned by Clipper Cruise Lines underwent a major steam boiler refit, while Alaska Sightseeing Cruise West brought its Spirit of '98 for maintenance, as well as Spirit of Endeavour for a habitability retrofit. R ecent customers include Red & White Fleet's tour boat Harbor Princess, which was at the yard for re-engining, joiner upgrades and dydocking; Blue & Gold Fleet's Pier 39-based tour boat Bay Clipper for annual drydocking and steel repair; Jericho Dredging's Shell Barge for sandblasing and painting and Jericho Spirit — a tug that underwent re-engining. Sterling V owned by Newport Petroleum paid a visit to the yard for voyage repairs, as well as Crowley Marine Services' Mars, which came in for dydocking and repairs. This month alone proves to be alive with activity for the company, who is scheduled to commence drydocking of the Foss oil barge San Pedro, as well as drydocking availability for the 378-ft. (115.2 m) U.S. Coast Guard Cutter, Chase.
