Bollinger Shipyards, Inc. hosted a celebration of success ceremony on May 1, commemorating the completion of the 87 ft Marine Protector-class Coastal Patrol Boat (CPB) project. The event featured the USCGC Sea Fox (WPB 87374).

S. Senator David Vitter (R-La.), Rep. Charlie Melancon (D-La.); Coast Guard Assistant Commandant for Acquisition Rear Adm. Gary T. Blore; Bollinger Shipyards, Inc. CEO and Chairman of the Board Donald “Boysie” Bollinger; Bollinger Executive Vice President, New Construction, Chris Bollinger; and 42-year Bollinger employee L.J. Adams, Facility Foreman, addressed the crowd.

Guests included dignitaries from federal, state and local agencies, including members of the U.S. Coast Guard, as well as employees of the Bollinger workforce.

The USCGC Sea Fox is the 124th new cutter designed, built and delivered by Bollinger to the Coast Guard.  The vessel represents the 75th cutter of the class.  The Marine Protector Class patrol boat contract was awarded to Bollinger on March 13, 1996.
