Wiiiardi Builds Conpositc Boats For L.A.

Willard Marine, Inc. of Anaheim, Calif., is constructing two identical 52-ft. (15.8-m) pilot boats based on a contract awarded by Worldport LA. The design is by C. Raymond Hunt & Associates, Boston, and features molded fiberglass hulls with aluminum decks and superstructures. The vessels are scheduled for delivery by mid-1995.

Powered by a pair of Detroit Diesel engines, each rated at 530 bhp, the deep-V, hard chine hull will have a top speed of 25 knots in order to serve the traffic at peak hours in this busy port. Scantlings are to ABS standards with additional reinforcements to meet the tough service. The design incorporates the latest technology for low sound and vibration transmission to the crew. The construction materials were selected to , of each. The molded requires minimal maintenance and has high impact-absorbing flexural properties. Above decks, the welded aluminum superstructure allows the cabin and boarding areas to be customized to the exact requirements of the Port of Los Angeles pilots. A rescue system will be incorporated which consists of a two-part transom mounted platform; a grid section acts as a guard to prevent contact with the propellers and a hinged section can be lowered into the water and used to scoop up an unconscious or injured person.

Construction time has been compressed as the decks and superstructures are being constructed on the plant floor while the hulls are molded. After the machinery is installed in the hulls, the decks and superstructure as a completed unit are lifted and installed
