On Gorodetsky ship-repairing factory the work is moving along in high gear.

Lifted on a slip steam-ship “Alexander Benua” looks as a model at an exhibition. The propelling-steering complex is being repaired and ship’s skin is also being replaced. Meanwhile they are dismantling wheels, screws and shafts.

Instead of a simple screw a vaned propulsive agent is mounted here . It is more convenient for navigators for the main reason: such maneuvering device works by button pressing in cabin at once, instead of going off in 10-15 seconds, as in steam-ships of 588 series. Besides, by steam-ships 26-37 it is more powerful.

It is interesting that on first four courts of a series the navigator could regulate the capacity of maneuvering device’s work .

Steam-ship “N.A.Nekrasov” has already visited the slip where its wheels, screws and shafts were dismantled for diagnostics and repair. Now the steam-ship is afloat again  – at a factory wall. After a while the steam-ship will be lifted again on a slip in order to repair the case, and to place everything removed back. By November both steam-ships will return on wintering in the Memory of the Commune of Paris boatyard.

  1. Gentlemen, you are missing the point. On these pages everyday we see despair and decay. Millions of tons of steel wasted because it still belongs to a state which doesn’t seem to know what recycling is. Here we see capitalists making things happen! Men are working, resources are recycled and the people get to go on a boat ride.
