Hoping the new Weeks one sorts out some of the issues from the first. Magdalen was pretty great.

What type of issues were they seeing on the Weeks new build? Seems that being an IHC design a lot of the usual new vessels problems would be eliminated compared to the usual one off Jones Act dredges

Yeh, what’s been going on with the Magdalen? Heard she’s been in the yard a lot.
