Crowley Marine Service sold its 3,200 hp twin screw tug, Howard H, to buyers in the Caribbean. The 125 x 32 ft. tug was originally built in 1967 by Southern Shipbuilding as Gulf King and is powered by twin Fairbanks Morse diesels.
Private interests in the San Francisco Bay Area have
purchased model bow, single screw tug Tara C (ex-Tacoma) from Campbell Towing, Inc., Wrangell, Alaska. The 64.5 x 19.5 ft. tug was built in 1957 in Bellingham, Wash. and is powered by a single 900 hp Cooper Bessemer slow turning, direct reversing diesel. The tug is to be converted into private yacht service
for the new owners after they sail her down from Southeastern Alaska.
