USAF Missile Retriever
The 120′ long x 25′ beam Missile Retriever was hauled out at Patti Marine on May 29th, 2019. She is one of three Missile Retriever vessels for the USAF, and is operated and managed by Florida Offshore, Inc., located at Tyndall AFB, watercraft operations, Panama City, FL.
Some of the main work was a complete hull paint job, and pull rudders, propellers, and shafts, for required inspections. One of the ship modifications included the installation of a new fire alarm/fire suppression system.
Other work included a completely new exhaust system for the main engines and generators, selected sea valves, piping repairs, and hydraulic work.
The TITAN is the first conversion we’ve undertaken for SeaFreeze Ltd. and the Goodwin family. The vessel was originally named the LUKE & SARAH and has been in numerous fisheries on the East Coast. The TITAN is a 121’ Trawler that will be homeported in North Kingstown, RI after repairs and upgrades are completed in Pensacola, FL. The vessel will be equipped with species specific nets to selectively trawl for targeted species – primarily Atlantic Illex and Loligo Squid, along with Herring and Mackerel.
