Safe/Sea Installs Model Display at T.F. Greene Airport


On Thursday August 10th, Safe/Sea unveiled its new promotional display at Providence Airport, on the Delta/Southwest concourse, directly in front of the T.G.I. Friday's restaurant.

The centerpiece of the display is a museum quality, 1:12 scale model of Safe/Sea's 33 foot by 12 foot M/V Safe/Sea Salvor. Every detail of the actual working vessel was reproduced, including the electronics, engines, jet drives, inflatable collar, lighting, and graphics. The model was built by Twenty-First Century Models, and took over two years to complete.

The model rests on a stainless steel pedestal custom built by DJ Enterprises. Embedded in all four sides of the pedestal are 7 inch LCD monitors which play video of several dramatic rescues performed by Safe/Sea in recent years. Signage is included, recognizing the full sized builder and major component suppliers. These companies include: ALMAR, manufacturer of the vessel, Hamilton Jet, manufacturer of the water-jet propulsion units, Yanmar Diesel, manufacturer of the engines, Wing, manufacturer of the inflatable collar, and Furuno, provider of the vessel's Radar.
The model of Safe/Sea's twin RIB is delivered from Twenty-First Century Models.
