Survey Vessel Redlinger

NEW ORLEANS, La : The USACE Portland District announces one of their newest survey vessels is among the 10 most significant boats of 2010.

Representatives from the Corps' Marine Design Center were on hand for the award presentation at the International Work Boat Show in New Orleans on Dec. 1.

More than 50 vessels were nominated by editors of WorkBoat magazine, based on details such as design or technological advances, speed, style and innovation.

The Redlinger was featured in the March 2010 edition of WorkBoat magazine. The Elton, based in Astoria, Ore., is identical to the Redlinger.
