Nantucket into Senesco Marine for Fix

Tuesday, May 04, 2004
Senesco Marine recently spent a little over a month making the ferry Nantucket seaworthy for Martha’s Vineyard Nantucket Steamship Authority in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. "Work included freeboard and underwater hull sandblasting, recoating, propeller and tail shaft removal and inspection along with rudder inspection," said Ed Kracunas, Vice President of Operations at Senesco Marine. Other work performed on the Nantucket involved overhauling the sea valves, installation of new grid coolers and sea chests, modification of the crew quarters and extensive bottom shell plating renewals. Finally, workers at Senesco Marine modified the deck beam to allow for proper tractor-trailer loading between Woods Hole, Mass., and Nantucket. "This was the first contract between Senesco Marine and the Nantucket Steamship Authority. We were really happy with the work performed and hope this is the start of a long relationship," said Gary Schuler, CEO of Senesco Marine. The 230 x 60-ft. Nantucket was built in 1974 and considered at that time to be a state-of-the-art vessel. She has a cruising speed of 14 knots.
