Great Lakes Shipyard hauled out the United States Coast Guard Cutter Neah Bay (WTGB-105) using its 770-ton capacity Travelift. The repair contract, awarded to the Shipyard in early March, includes routine drydocking and underwater hull maintenance such as inspection and testing of propulsion systems; overhaul of sea valves and shaft seal assemblies; and other various cleaning, inspections, and repairs.

This is the first of the USCG’s nine 140-foot Bay Class ice breaking tugs to be drydocked using Great Lakes Shipyard’s new Marine Travelift. The Traveliftis are the largest on the Great Lakes in the United States and Canada, second largest in the Western Hemisphere and third largest in the world. It was specifically designed and sized for Great Lakes Shipyard to accommodate the Bay Class Coast Guard Cutters and other vessels.

Work on the NEAH BAY is to be completed by late June.

Great Lakes Shipyard is a full-service yard specializing in new construction, fabrication and repairs of all types of vessels and barges.
