Chesapeake Shipbuilding has launched the brand new tugboat Quantico Creek. The Quantico Creek is the fourth of six tugboats that Chesapeake is building for Vane Brothers of Baltimore, Md. The launching went perfectly and the tug will now go into its outfitting stages where it will be completed for an on time delivery. The day before the launching, the Quantico Creek was moved from its indoor fabrication facility to the launch ways. Due to the favorable indoor climate, more work was completed before the move and launch than on any vessel previously built by Chesapeake.

The launching comes just a few weeks after the Charles Burton, the third of six tugs that Chesapeake is building for Vane Brothers, was delivered. All six tugs are 94 feet long and 32 feet wide. They are equipped with a single drum hydraulic winch from JonRie of N.J. and twin Caterpillar 3512 main engines capable of producing a combined 3,000 hp.
