Crew Boat Delivered to MES

Monday, May 10, 2004

SeaArk Marine and Alan C. McClure Associates (ACMA) teamed to design, build and deliver a customized crew boat to Maryland Environmental Services (MES). The 48-ft. Dauntless Class all-welded aluminum crew boat is a deep-vee hull designed to transport officials and dignitaries to view the progress being made in reclaiming wetlands for the Poplar Island Project on Maryland's Eastern Shore in the Chesapeake Bay.

ACMA's initial efforts were focused on defining the requirements and general overall characteristics that would be required of the vessel in its operating environment. ACMA then developed the specifications for bid and evaluated the responses to the bid packages. Ultimately, SeaArk Marine was selected by Maryland Environmental Services to build the vessel and according to ACMA Vice President Darrel Harvey, "Throughout the project, SeaArk Marine was exceptionally detail-oriented and very owner-responsive. And, at the end of the project, we found SeaArk Marine's overall quality control to be very impressive." Once the project was underway, ACMA's responsibilities included overseeing construction, managing change orders and providing owner's representation throughout the project. ACMA also worked closely with the owner during sea trials. On completion of the project, ACMA verified the delivery punch list, and observed load-out and securing for the vessel's final transportation to Maryland's Chesapeake Bay. The boat, powered by twin 580 hp Cummins diesel engines, coupled with Hamilton Jet pumps through a reverse gear, can reach a speed of 27.7 knots. The vessel is climate-controlled and is outfitted with the latest navigation and operations electronics, a 12KW generator 60 hz, with two (2) 50-amp shore power locations, two (2) 12-man canister life rafts, an aft fantail extension, and front and rear push knees. It has accommodations to carry 28 passengers and is USCG certified.
