Chelonian was built in 1994 and is now 23 years old so I thought it was about time it had some tlc to extend its life and improve some of the facilities. These works are being carried out over the winter in a number of stages.

Phase 1 November 2017 

Hull and Fabrication works.

This included zinc coating the hull and several welding jobs to improve the hull life, as well as adding a new skin tank for engine cooling and a new flexiable drive coupling.
