Thanks to the generosity of Cygnus Instruments, the Tender Tug Calshot Trust have been successfully able to measure the thickness of the steel plating, at this crucial time in the vessels life.
Back in April 2020, the new Directors of Calshot realised they needed to gain an accurate picture of the ship, which meant measuring the thickness of the ships steel. We decided to reach out to Cygnus Instruments Limited and ask about the price of hiring a suitable gauge for the job.
Cygnus saw the merit of restoring the Calshot to become seaworthy again, and thanks to their belief in our vision, they decided to donate a multi-mode Cygnus 4+ ultrasonic thickness gauge. It has become the perfect tool for gauging an accurate measuring through Calshot’s various coats of paint, and heavily corroded steel work.
We are incredibly grateful to Cygnus for their ongoing support, with work now firmly underway to gain an accurate picture of the vessels condition.
