Re-decking of the “Navy Barge”

One of our ongoing projects here at Smith Brothers Yard in Galesville, MD is the re-decking of what we like to call the “Navy Barge”. Originally purchased by SBI from the United States Navy this barge had a depth of nearly 12 ft, much too deep for the majority of our customers. We have already cut the deck down to a more usable height of 7 ft and are currently working on installing the centerline bulkhead before putting a new deck on her. Below are pictures of our progress as of Mid-October 2015.
