Safety Alert - Watertight Doors

Friday, November 21, 2008

The US Coast Guard issued an alert reminding owners, operators, and masters of the importance of properly maintaining and closing watertight doors.  The condition of watertight doors should be checked on a regular basis to ensure that gaskets are fully serviceable and seal properly with the knife-edges when the doors are closed.  Watertight doors should be closed while the vessel is underway, except when persons are actually transiting from one space to another.  Alert 12-08 (11/19/08).
