Detyens Shipyard Saves Christmas Cruise
Cunard's Seaborn Sun underwent an emergency dry-docking to repair internal damage to the port controllable pitch propeller. Detyens dissembled the blades and hub internals as well as installed new parts supplied by the manufacturer and machined by the shipyard.
Detyens employees worked 24-hour shifts in order to expedite the return of the Seaborn Sun to Ft. Lauderdale in time for the start of their Christmas cruise.
Detyens also completed steel and pipe renewals, cleaning and coating of the hull and the performance of an inclining experiment while the ship was at Detyens facility.
