Art Anderson Associates led a project to upgrade lifesaving equipment across the Alaska Marine Highway System vessel fleet.  The project consisted of preparing planning, design, and construction documents for upgrade and refurbishment of lifeboat and supporting structural, electrical, and hydraulic systems.  Project goals included using similar installations across as many vessels as practical and minimizing the life cycle cost of the systems.  Vessels included the Aurora, Columbia, Kennicott, LeConte, Malaspina, Matanuska, Taku, and Tustumena.
