Work resumes onboard MVS vessels
Following advice from the government the MVS has resumed some essential maintenance onboard our vessels.
This has allowed units to keep the boats in a serviceable condition until lockdown is lifted.
Over the weekend, work has taken place on the North West’s regional training vessel, Curlew, including fitting new filters and cleaning parts of the boat.
Social distancing has been a big part of how units must plan any sort of work including sticking to the two metre rule or working alone if possible.
Our web editor Adam Swires, who has finished university for the summer and has time to put work into Curlew said, “although working on the boats is essential it’s important to stay safe while doing so to protect our members”.
He added that it’s a great shame to have to work alone rather than in a team but it’s understandable during the current situation.
