    Assurance – Mast work

    Commercial Fishing Vessel

    ‘Assurance’, formerly known as the F/V Mickey H, is a 55-foot Hansen that was with us for many weeks. Platypus redesigned and upgraded this entire vessel including these major projects:

    • Sandblasted pilot house and painted complete vessel
    • Designed and added transom extension for greater buoyancy with fabricated stainless steel guard
    • Performed hull stretch — cut vessel to mid-ship and added 3 feet
    • Modified exhaust in mast
    • Modified mast and pilot house overhead
    • Removed and reconstructed fish deck
    • Repaired structure to hull corners and port bow
    • Fabricated and installed bulkhead and deck
    • Fabricated and installed new black Virgin caprails and rubrails
    • Fabricated and installed new fuel tanks with sight glasses added
    • Fabricated and installed new hatches
