USACE Names New Survey Vessel CATLETT

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District, named its new hydrographic survey vessel, the CATLETT, yesterday morning in a ceremony in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

The CATLETT will support Baltimore District’s mission of ensuring safe navigation on channels in and out of the Port of Baltimore as well as on dozens of other channels throughout the region by mapping channel depths.

Dredging these channels and keeping them open is critical to the region’s economy, including 34,000 jobs that stem from the cargo that transits this Port of Baltimore.

The vessel was named in honor of the late Harold Catlett, Jr., who was a hydrographic surveyor with Baltimore District for roughly 30 years prior to his sudden passing in 2014.

Baltimore District Commander Col. Ed. Chamberlayne hosted the ceremony, with remarks provided by the Maryland Port Administration’s Director of Harbor Development Chris Correale; U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Headquarters Command Sgt. Maj. Bradley Houston; and Catlett’s sister, Angela Leone.
