AK Fishing Boat Repowered with Isuzu

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Kodiak Diesel in Kodiak, Alaska has just finished the repower of the F/V Jeanoah an 84 ft crabbing and long line vessel owned by Fairweather Fisheries, Jerry Bongen & James Stevens. The new engine is a UM6WG1WM-AB1K Isuzu tier 2 common rail, M1 rating to deliver 505 HP @1800 RPM engine. The engine was paired with a Twin Disc 5170 6:1 transmission.

The Jenoah fishes from Sitka out to the Aleutian Islands. With a fishing area this large, engine reliability is very important. Kodiak Diesel worked closely with the owners to choose an engine that would work as hard as they do while offering the dependability needed in this harsh environment.

The 225,000 lb boat performed well at sea trials and on its initial run from Kodiak to Sitka Alaska. The boat had a cruising speed of nine knots at 1600 RPM while burning 11.5 gallons of fuel per hour.
