They were carried out between keppel Tuas and sembewang Singapore as part of their 3 special dockings

Large amounts of structural steel replacement
Condenser retubing and sleeving
Radar tank gauging systems fitted
Full overhaul of all pneumatic control systems
Upgrade of alarm annunciation
Boiler retubing (complete rebuilding of one on the Reliance)
Economiser replacement
Complete winch and windlass overhaul
Complete COW upgrade
There was loads more, these were sizeable jobs , at least two months in dock
The measure of a life
is a measure of love and respect
So hard to earn, so easily burned
In the fullness of time
A garden to nurture and protect
