THE "FYLGJA" ("Guardian Angel")
The LWRC is proud to announce the acquisititon of a new vessel the "Fylgja", a 42' (LOA) touring boat, received as a charitable donation from Barbara and Jens Nielsen.This vessel was built in the same year as the Motor Vessel Namao (1973/74) in Riverton by Alec Zagozewski. With a shallow draft, the FYLGJAl is particularly well suited for nearshore work and will serve as a valuable complement to the Motor Vessel Namao's offshore capabilities. A timely acquisition since it coincides with the arrival of zebra mussels, an aquatic invasive species that will initially have the greatest impact in the nearshore area.
