Tuesday, May 20, 2008

Guido Perla and Associates, Inc. (GPA) said that Kvichak Marine, a Seattle-Based designer and builder of aluminum vessels, has launched a Fast Pilot Boat for which GPA provided total production engineering for the construction of the hull, piping, propulsion, outfitting and electrical systems. The Pilot Boat, measuring 22 m long, is an all welded aluminum monohull of significant deadrise with a double chine. The vessel is designed as an all-weather pilot launch and will provide exceptional sea-keeping, a comfortable ride, and excellent performance in the planing regime, where sea and weather conditions allow. The vessel is self-righting and is equipped with twin-engine propulsion with excellent all round visibility, an aft mounted wheelhouse, an energy absorbing fender system and a large clear deck layout. The vessel is owned and operated by the Columbia River Bar Pilots, a group of twenty pilots providing pilotage services for vessels in the lower Columbia River, including a wide variety of vessel sizes from 100 foot tugs through 1,100 foot tankers and various types including bulk carriers, container ships, auto carriers, log ships and any other vessel requesting our services.
