A Staten Island contractor has been awarded a $572,100 contract to refurbish the DCV Driftmaster, one of three New York District drift collection vessels that patrol New York and New Jersey Harbors to collect hazardous debris.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded the contract to May Ship Repair Contracting Corp.

 The DCV Driftmaster

The DCV Driftmaster heads home in 2010 after a day of patrolling the New York and New Jersey Harbors, collecting drift and debris that could be hazardous to navigation.

The Driftmaster is one of three vessels assigned daily to collect large floating drift that presents hazards to carriers, tankers, ferries, cruise ships and recreational vessels that use the harbors.

The Corps of Engineers calls drift “a very serious threat” to vessel hulls, rudders and propellers. The three ships collect the equivalent of 225 40-foot highway tractor-trailers full of drift each year.

A USACE video tells the ship’s story and discusses its mission.

Scope of Work

The project involves drydocking, inspecting, repairing and launching the 99-foot vessel. The work includes:

• Cleaning and painting the vessel’s exterior;

• Reconditioning the shaft and propeller;

• Adding a 10-inch fender system to the hull;

• Replacing zinc anodes and deckplate/bolts for catwalks;

• Removing, priming and painting all deckplates;

• Pressure washing, prepping rust spots, priming and painting the main engine rooms;

• Pressure washing, prepping and painting fresh water tanks and auxiliary space;

• Inspecting and cleaning ballast tanks with an option item to blast, prime and paint; and

• Blasting, prepping and priming compartments below deckplates and main deck house.

About the Contractor

Founded more than 25 years ago, May Ship is headed by Mohamed Mokhles Adam, a Naval architect and marine engineer. The shipyard has three dry docks that can accommodate ships up to 300 feet long.

May Ship provides steel, piping, electrical, blasting, painting and machinery repair services for barges, tug boats, tank ships and sightseeing vessels.
