    The repair of the engine room top will require access removal of 2nd officer cabin ..

    Hello everybody!

    The repair of the engine room top willrequire access removal of 2nd officer cabin partly.

    The sentence was written by a Dutch author. I think it means "The repair of the engine room top will require partial removal of the 2nd officer cabin for the purpose of gaining access".

    Do you think I am right in my thinking?

    Thank you.

    I do think you're right, but I'd call it "the 2nd officer's cabin" (possessive).
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
