published on 15 October 2020 279

The Los Angeles Pilot Service ordered two customized 56′ Camarc Design pilot boats (P/B) built by Vigor Industrial at their Vancouver, WA facility, located on the northern side of the Columbia River. The LA Pilot Service took delivery of the P/B Angels Pilot and Angels Navigator at Vigor’s shipyard on Swan Island in Portland, Oregon in early October.

Mackay Marine was hand-selected by Vigor to be their marine electronics integration expert for both vessels providing high-end Furuno navigation systems such as their Navnet 3D TZT2 series Multi-Function Display System, with ancillary navaids including GPS, AIS, and Loudhailer. Mackay was also the provider for the boats’ FLIR Thermal Camera, Icom VHF radios, ACR EPIRB, and Wilson weBoost Cell Phone Booster System.
