    Captain’s Log: Fort Lauderdale Bound

    Captain Bowland | April 13th, 2011
    Monday was our final evening in Freeport, Bahamas. At about 1800hrs (6 p.m.) we started flooding the dock and within 1.5 hours the ship was sitting on the six meter mark, still on the blocks. Then the engineering department began bringing the essential services back on line. They managed all of this in record time. Ballasting of the ship commenced and the lifeboats and tenders were brought back to the ship. Around midnight the crew took some much needed rest.

    Tuesday morning at 0810 we floated the ship off the blocks to the eight meter mark, her standard draft. We all knew when the ship floated as she leisurely took on a two/tenths of a degree list to starboard. Main propulsion systems were brought on line and tested. Just before 0900am we backed her out of the slip and said farewell to Freeport until our next dry docking in 2013. Then the massive clean up effort began to ready the ship for Ft. Lauderdale. Deck and Engine were busy all day testing and tuning critical equipment and conducting drills. We looked forward to seeing Ft. Lauderdale. All in all, a very successful dry docking for the team here on board Eurodam.
