COMMENTS

These boats are the very first cored hull composite craft purchased by the navy. Having cut our teeth on navy contracting with the Motor Whale Boats we set to and made some money with this contract. 19 boats built and delivered on time. Countless contract data requirements (CDRL's) prepared, approved, and submitted on time.


FOOTNOTE

It seems insane to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on something that may get blown to smithereens but when you consider the bullets - often cruise missiles - cost over a million bucks . . you better have some pretty good training tools.
