Trident Hull Plating August 2015

August 25, 2014 GEO Shipyard New Iberia, LA

On our recent visit to GEO Shipyard the Trident hull has come along way.  All of the hull framing is complete and the plating is well underway.  This gives a great view of what the completed hull will look like.  You can now really see the canoe shape to the hulls giving them the effeciency we desired.

R/V Trident interior finishes

At GEO the R/V Blake is nearing completion and we toured the similarly designed vessel.  The Blake and the Trident will have the same interior finishes so we were able to get a good look at the fit and finish and what the Trident will look like when complete. 

All durable material but in an inviting nautical design.
