$3 million car barge added to fleet

Pastor Carlyle Sampson of Nazareth Lutheran Church officiated
at the blessing of Mr. B., a 136-foot long 44-foot wide barge about to
be put into service by Boyson Inc.  The ceremony was conducted
at the Enighed Pond commercial port.  Mr. B can transport 52 vehicles,
twice as many as Boyson’s General.  Cheryl Boynes-Jackson told the Virgin Islands Daily News
her firm was involved in the design of the $3 million barge.
"Everything we’ve learned over the years we put into that vessel for the 21st century," she said. The company is also updating another of
its ships, the 11-year-old General II. Mr. B was built by Chaison
Shipyard
in New Orleans and named after Noel Boynes Sr., the company’s
founder, according to the Daily News report.
