Crowley's Sea Victory To Perform Tow

Thursday, September 02, 1999
The Crowley Marine Services' tug, Sea Victory will tow the USS New Jersey from Bremerton, Wash. to Philadelphia via the Panama Canal on September 12. The most decorated battleship in U.S. history, having earned 16 battle stars, the tug towed the former USS Missouri to Pearl Harbor last year. Most recently though was the tug's tow of the aircraft carrier the former USS Oriskany on a 15,000 mile journey around South America from Vallejo, Calif to Beaumont, Texas. Towing the 887 ft. (270 m), USS New Jersey at a speed of about 6 knots, the 149 ft. (45.4 m), 7,200-hp Sea Victory is one of the three Crowley tugs of this class. Designed to operate in immense adverse conditions, the tug is suited for ocean towing with a fuel capacity of about 200,000 gallons.
