Abstract : The Ocean Construction Barge SEACON was originally constructed as a U.S. NaVY YFNB barge of World War II vintage, then later acquired by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and converted to a special purpose barge. The Navy reacquired the barge and converted it once again for its present functional purpose of supporting the Naval Facilities Engineering Command in ocean construction projects. This conversion involved the addition of diesel propulsion engines, Voith-Scneider cycloidal propulsors, and extensive redesign of the interior arrangements and superstructure. The barge was renamed SEACON.
