Tugboat "Georgia"

tugboat shaft and marine gear alignment Savannah Georgia
On the Savannah River- Georgia is a river and offshore tug.
Marine gear and shaft seal alignment were performed optically as part of the refit project headed by Steve Drago of Savannah Marine Repair and Terry Thompson of Crescent Towing.

The size of the nozzles dwarfs the optical alignment telescope. Sometimes on these projects just the scaffolding and platform for the telescope become a logistical challenge- but Savannah Marine Repair has the skill and equipment to handle everything in a totally professional way. A pleasure to work with.

Large shafts but Marine Alignment works from 2.500" diameter shafting up to as large as they come. Below that size the benefits of optical alignment become less relative to the benefits. However, I will quote or discuss any size shaft or alignment project on any yacht or ship, including waterjets.
