Orange Shipbuilding completes first boat

Tugboats are good economic news for Orange County said Orange Shipbuilding General Manager Harry Murdock as he showed off the first of four 242-ton tugboats his company built for the Army Corp of Engineers. The tow boat Evanick is part of a $23 million contract to build four state of the art tow boats to replace the Army Corp of Engineers fleet of workhorse, freshwater tow boats.
