  • Thanks Grant from WET Marine for doing a quick visual inspection at short notice of my rudder after hitting a submerged object which assisted my surveyor in organising repairs.

  • My Vessel had a massive vibration and I thought the prop shaft had been damaged till WET Marine did a visual inspection with the drone where it was found that a massive growth had formed on a propeller blade. The growth was quickly removed, and I did not have to pay for dry dock or a mechanical inspection thanks team 👌
