Dry Dock Schedules

Healy has regularly scheduled dry docks every three years. The most recent dry dock was fall 2009- winter 2010. During the 2009/10 dry dock Healy's multibeam echosounder was replaced. This involved cutting a new hole in the hull to accomodate a larger hydophone array

Healy's next dry dock will begin in fall 2012.
