Guilbeau Marine Boats Complete Sea Trials

Seatrials have successfully been completed by Bollinger Shipyards, Inc., Lockport, La., on the first of four 145.5-ft. utility vessels under contract for Guilbeau Marine, Inc., Cut Off, La. Delivery of the Ms. Caroline was August 24, 2001, and the second boat, Mr. Chad is scheduled for delivery in late September 2001. The boats are named in honor of Caroline Guilbeau, granddaughter of owner Anthony "Noonie" Guilbeau, Jr. and Chad Guilbeau, office manager of the company. "Older utility boats in the 110 foot to 125 foot range are becoming obsolete," said Chad Guilbeau, "and this new Bollinger 145 foot design is ideal for working the shallower waters of the Gulf of Mexico Outer Continental Shelf because of their size, versatility and maneuverability. Both of these boats are scheduled to go on production support projects right after delivery." Scott Theriot, executive vice-president, new construction of Bollinger said, "With forty-two dry-docks servicing a wide variety of vessels, our technical people meet new challenges every day by solving unusual repair, conversion and retrofits with innovative solutions. Their contact with boat owners, captains and crews provides our naval architects and marine engineers with direct knowledge of operations and ways to improve future designs. This dialog often produces ideas that will make boats more user-friendly and safer while providing optimum vessel and bottom line performance
