#598 32.8' x 11.8'-  V Landing Craft

Background:

This design  was developed to work in aquaculture in the Gulf of Maine.  The first was built by Lyman Morse Fabrication in Thomaston, Maine and is currently in final outfitting stage.  Lifting capability has been an ongoing debate throughout the project, with the final decision being an HPU and hydraulic crane mounted just forward of the house.
