Bisso Marine Company, Inc., New

Machine Shop and Shipyard,

Lockport, La., and also successfully completed the task of lifting the USS

Aquila PHM-4 to a high cradle posi- tion on the bank at the Jacksonville

Bollinger was completed by Bisso successfully launching forty-nine 110-foot Island-class USCG patrol boats using the derrick barge Ajax.

The vessels are being used by the

Coast Guard for rescue and in the

Coast Guard's drug interdiction pro- gram.

Bisso Marine Company received another two-year contract from

Bollinger to launch thirteen 170- foot U.S. Navy patrol boats now under construction. The launches will be done by Bisso's 700-ton der- rick barge Bisso at the Lockport facility.

The USS Aquila PHM-4 was suc- cessfully lifted by Bisso Marine from the St. Johns River to a high cradle position on the bank at the Jackson- ville Shipyard in Jacksonville, Fla.

The intricate task of lifting the vessel was accomplished by the 700- ton derrick barge Cappy Bisso.
