A fouled propeller can quickly turn a relaxing day on the water into a stressful situation. This common boating problem occurs when fishing nets or debris get wrapped around the propeller, impeding its performance. In this blog post, our dive team PM Diving Services got a last minute call out or fast ball to rectify the problem.

"Navigating the complexities of marine maintenance, a fouled propeller stands as a critical issue that can hinder a vessel's performance and safety!" - The Ancient Mariner

The propeller had been fouled by green fishing nets, which can be a common issue near busy shipping lanes as it snagged in the Dover area.

With skill and precision, the team was able to clear the obstruction and perform a thorough inspection, including the port side as well and checked the anode fixings. It was all in a day's work for this experienced team of divers.
