Since the shipyards normally charge you daily for hardstand, time is limited and work intensive.
We took the chance to inspect and service rudder as well as propellershaft seal (inspect/tighten clams,inspect rubber,clean and lubricate).
The seachest on Dora Mac also has been with air trapped on top so we replaced the gasket,cleaned and bled the seachest at relaunch so it´s now with it´s waterlevel to the top.
Relaunch was uneventful with no leakages and coolingwater coming from the John Deere exhaust outlet (has been a problem with air trapped in the seachest).
