NCI completes Dry-Dock Work aboard USS Cape St. George (CG-71) – ahead of schedule and under budget
The gleaming hull of CG-71 is receiving her final rinse before returning to the warm waters of the Pacific. NCI technicians finished applying the final coats of paint to the ship’s hull and superstructure and re-stenciled the proud name “CAPE ST GEORGE” on the stern this week as CG-71 begins preparing for undocking next week. The entire hull, most of the superstructure, exhaust stacks, masts, and countless tanks and voids were all completely cleaned, blasted, preserved and expertly painted. The ship was made ready for sea ahead of schedule and with zero discrepancies noted. USS Cape St. George is ready for sea again… thanks to the NCI team!
