Newcastle, being a major eastern sea board port offers the opportunity to supply commercial divers to carry out underwater video hull inspection on vessels, propeller polishing, reports and repairs.
Working closely with shipping agents we are requested to undertake urgent, at short notice, diving operations on vessels.
This includes -
  • Hull repair
  • Replacement of anodes
  • Sealing of stern glands to allow for internal repair and removal of foreign objects.
  • Removal of marine growth from props, sea chests and rope guards.
  • Underwater video inspections, survey and reports.
We carry Lloyds certification for small vessel survey.

Forages Floating Dock Newcastle specialize in ship repair. Divers are required to assist in docking operations where the shape of the vessel, thruster and sonar positions on some vessels is critical.

Divers were recently engaged by Waterways to carry out the salvage of a 50' timber vessel from Newcastle harbour. We have also been called upon to salvage airplanes, catamarans and barges. Each salvage is different and divers must adapt to each application.
