The quality of the steel also plays a large part in the longevity of the hull, quite often we see younger vessels with significant galvanic corrosion to the base plate. When surveying steel hull's it is important that the vessel is dry docked and all the growth removed from the baseplate. The hull is sounded in the first instance to establish any significant weaknesses. This is followed by ultrasound testing which will indicate any diminution on the thickness of the baseplate.
