Supply Vessel Overhauled By Homeport Marine
Homeport Marine Services, Moss Point, Miss., formerly Quality Shipbuilders, Inc., has recently completed a rework project on the suppy vessel Hope Tide, according to the firm's president Jack Edwards. Homeport Marine performed extensive work on the 180-foot vessel's propellers, shafts, rudders and other associated underwater gear. This work was accomplished in drydock through the assistance of Flechas Shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss.
Hull painting as well as deck plating repair was performed along with necessary cleaning and testing to comply with regulatory body specifications. The Hope Tide, which is owned by Tidewater Marine Services, Inc., New Orleans, La., returned to service in Mexico after her overhaul was completed.
