District christens the MV Larsen
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, celebrated the arrival of its newest vessel, the Model Vessel Curt Larsen, with a christening ceremony at Lock and Dam 2 in Hastings, Minn., April 16. The MV Larsen was commissioned as a working boat by the district's public affairs office in 2013 to assist in the accomplishment of the district's community relations misson. The Larsen will be used to tow demonstration loads in the district's lock model. It was named after district lock operator Curt Larsen, who manufactured the boat. He created the vessel to be able to withstand thousands of children playing with it for a number of years.
