Container Lashing Rods

Container lashing rods cause considerable damage to the ships main deck paintwork when they are dropped from some height by stevedores. Some ships have fitted old rubber matting on the deck area between the container bays. This ship has stowage positions for the rods and clear instructions are fitted at the top of the gangway for the benefit of the stevedores.

Ships staff advised that the system was surprisingly working well. The images below show the instructions to stevedores, and a photo of the rods in their stowage position. Click on an image to enlarge.
