Rigdon Marine recently received the M/V Conti, the seventh of ten GPA 640 platform supply vessels being built at Bender Shipyard in Mobile, Alabama
. Mrs. Patti Guice, wife of Billy Guice, Vice President of Marketing for Rigdon Marine, christened the vessel before it dispatched for contract work in the Gulf of Mexico
. “We are extremely please that the M/V Conti was immediately dispatched to support the worldwide offshore activities of a prominent oil service company,” said Larry Rigdon. “This recent deployment continues to reinforce the numerous advantages of the GPA 640 PSV including increased fuel efficiency, superior station-keeping via our ABS-classed DPS-2 system and increased liquid mud capacity in self-cleaning, cylindrical cargo tanks.”
