Client: Malakoff

Date: August 2013

Value: Not Stated

Work Description: The Banff registered fishing boat the FV Prospect, BF 573, hit rocks while leaving Lerwick harbour in early August 2013. Efforts were made by the Lerwick Lifeboat and Lerwick Port Authority tugs to beach the sinking vessel but were unsuccessful when she eventually sunk just north of the harbour enterance.

Several attempts to raise the vessel were made, eventually raising her on 23rd August. She was then taken to our slipway for damage investigation and possible repair.

In late October 2013, Malakoff have completed repairs to her hull, replacing damaged planking and refloating her. She will be moored on the Malakoff Pier in Lerwick while further repairs are made to the ships machinery.

Work Scope: as of 28th October 2013.

  • Slipping of vessel on Malakoff Slip and investigation of damage to hull.

  • Removal of damaged hull planking
  • Minor repairs to damaged frames
  • Replace damaged planks with new planks
