Lorraine Hooks on Tow

Apr 13, 2022

Yesterday, the hull of our new 27-inch cutter suction dredge Lorraine Hooks began its tow from Galveston to Houston. There, at Southwest Shipyard’s Brady Island, it will get dry-docked, sandblasted, and painted. We look forward to seeing her outfitted with the “Mike Hooks Red” and then moving into the next phase!
