•    Routine maintenance of the three bow thrusters
•    Routine maintenance and inspection of the four stabilizers

•    Cleaning and inspection of various tanks (fuel tanks, fresh water tanks, grey water tanks, black water tanks) by the classification society

*In case of an insufficiently high water level during the morning high tide on November 13, 2008, the QM2 will be undocked during the next high tide in the afternoon at about 16:00 h
