why are there hotels and airports on trusteddocks ?

Welcome to the hotel of California was one of the biggest hits in the 70s. But, the Eagles were not  superintendents and i am also not sure what they had in mind when they wrote this famous song. Anyhow, hotels and airports surrounding a shipyard are important for those people who go there to do their work. And it is always nice to have a clean bed and maybe a cold beer after work, than to be in a dirty place in the middle of nowhere. So check out the surroundings before you end up in the wrong place !

what do fleet superintendents and Crowded House have in common ?!

Weather with You” was one of the greatest Hits from Crowded House in the 90s. But not only the Australian Rockstars are surrounded by the weather – vessels in shipyards have the same issue.

Thats why fleet superintendent should care about weather conditions and climate zones – because there are situations where some special work can´t be done. There are also extreme conditions where shipyard cannot be reached or left.

Paint work, especially in tanks, can´t be done if the humidity is higher than 50-60%. But also hull paintings need dry and not so cold or hot enviroment to achieve good results.

We also know about ships that couldn´t leave their shipyards because of heavy ice during the winter season in the Baltic sea.

Because of this, trusteddocks has integrated weather statistics for all listed shipyards, so our users can have a look into the weahter statistics and forecasts before they decide which shipyard to use.

And, of course – having a cold beer in the sun, after a hard day of work, is never wrong.
