Project Outline
The ablative anti-fouling bottom paint on HMB Endeavour, a modern-day replica of the vessel that took Captain James Cook on his 1768–71 voyage of discovery, desperately needed attention. Since commissioned in 1994 this 33.3-meter-long (length overall), splendid specimen of Australian maritime heritage has twice circumnavigated the globe, logged more than 170,000 nautical miles, visited 29 countries and numerous Pacific islands, and served as a floating educational museum in more than 100 ports of call. After 20 years of service, the original bottom paint was long overdue for replacement.
