USS HENRY CLAY SSBN-625
SAND BLASTING COMMENCES
To maintain the hull, it had to be cleaned and repainted.
The first order of business was
to clean off all marine life and old paint. This was done with huge sand blasting hoses.
In this photo, you can see that sand blasting had commenced. The slate gray areas
of the hull were bare metal. As you can see, there was a lot of surface area to clean.
