New construction projects have included delivery of an 88 ft bunker boat and a 25 ft truckable towboat. Currently Horizon is building an additional 25 ft truckable towboat and a 38 ft towboat for Marine Inland Fabricators.
Numerous repair projects have also been performed, the most significant being a comprehensive repair to the towboat Red Wagner for the Tennessee Valley Authority. Current repair projects include the towboat L.W. Nelson for Parker Towing and the F/V Miss Peggy for Bon Secour Fisheries.
