The Webb Institute of Naval Architecture. He continued his experience
working with Sal and Greg at The Trinity Marine Group after GCI was
Karl and Sal worked together developing the 78 foot Patrol Craft Fast
(PCF) contract design proposal resulting in a contract award to Trinity
and ultimately over 30 craft built. He became the Project Engineer during
the detail design development and when production began he was the Program
Manager for the project which included craft built at Trinity’s
facilities and the Philippines through a co-production program. He was
also Program Manager for the USN MkV special operations craft built
Sal also worked together at Trinity Yachts, Inc. on several yacht projects.

Lead Hull Structures Designer
Craig is possibly the best example of the unique insight and experience
at GCL that results in practical and highly producible designs. He started
at Halter Marine in 1973 as a shipfitter and later became a loftsman.
During this time he also studied graphic science at Delgado College that,
with his field knowledge of structures, enabled him to become a top structural
draftsman at Halter.
He was GCI’s first employee in 1980 where he excelled in the application
and interpretation of classification society rules for hull structures.
Craig went on to work at Trinity Marine and later Trinity Yachts where
he applied his talents to a number of diverse projects from large research
vessels to small high speed patrol craft and yachts. Craig started at
GCL in 2001 where he is considered an invaluable member of its staff.

to GCL. Prior to GCL he was Manager of Structural and Outfitting Design
at Trinity Marine Products a Division of Trinity Industries, Inc.

15 years at Avondale Shipyards. Brian began his production oriented experience
as a shipfitter and later as a loftsman and then a draftsmen in the Hull
Section. In time Brian became an excellent Structural Designer and was
also exposed to then newly developing NC technology. This enabled him
to acquire expertise in the field and later become an accomplished NC
