This year in 2014 Nichols has completed two barge repairs for Island Tug and Barge, one bulbous bow attachment to the Ken Clark a Western Marine Construction barge, and a repower of the M/V Jet Cat Express for Catalina Express. The Jet Cat was built by NBBB in 2000. Currently NBBB is working on a 10’ stern extension on the F/V Karin Lynn, converting the fishing vessel from 120’ in length to 130’.
