November 2005 to April 2006, Savannah, GA. It was a great experience. 

When we were asked to survey the air conditioning system for refit it looked like to large of project to do away from our Ft. Lauderdale facility, and also within a reasonable budget for the vessel.

To introduce the company to an out of state refit was not the safest thing to do, but when you know you can do it and do it the best, you do it.

In the meantime of conducting business in Ft. Lauderdale and Savannah, we were struck with two hurricanes, WILMA and KATRINA.
