the Launch of the Second AOPS has been delayed by at least a month.
In August, Irving Shipbuilding applied for a coasting trade license to use the BoaBarge 37 to launch the ship for a 30 Day period between Oct 18 and Nov 18. ISI has now requested another window Between Nov 25 and Dec 23.
the reason for the delay is unclear, but is unlikely related to the stop work order after a contract worker was killed by sand blasting equipment at the yard in July. The original application was dated July 24.
