Sailors need water, that’s no news. They need a sea to sail, but just like other humans they also need to drink it. As you might have read in the earlier blog about our drinkingwater being sabotaged, we have a watermaker aboard that converts seawater into freshly drinkable water. But only the watermaker can’t do. There’s also big watertanks aboard that can hold up lots of liters of water.
During our the current maintenance period these watertanks needed to be inspected properly, and it turned out that the ceiling and walls could use some new cement. Luckily our crew knows how to take care of this! They grabbed a big spoon, a bucket full of cement and dove into the tank!
