During this podcast we listen to the perspective of a Marine Surveyor on the topic of hatch cover maintenance. As our subject matter expert, Kaupo Püvi is a former seafarer with experience of sailing on general cargo ships. He now works for Van Ameyde Krogius where he is involved in loss prevention and damage surveys which frequently address hatch covers.
In this episode we discuss some of the common pitfalls that go against recommended best practices, the importance of training and knowledge, and the need for better shoreside support from the Shipowner to achieve proper maintenance and repairs.
