Inland Boatworks to Deliver Triple Screw Towboat

Tuesday, March 21, 2000
April is the scheduled delivery date for a 64 x 28 x 9.5 ft. push boat for Stockstill Boat Rentals of New Iberia Louisiana from Inland Boatworks of Orange, Texas. The new boat will be the second delivered from the Inland yard to this customer; 54 x 22-ft. Mitzi Evelyn was delivered in December of 1997. The new boat, to be named Brian Paul, will be the owner's first pushboat with Cummins power. Propulsion will be provided by three Cummins six-cylinder KTA19 engines rated for 500 hp at 1,800 rpm, turning six-in. stainless shafts and 66 x 48-in. Rice four-blade bronze propellers through Twin Disc 516 gears at 6:1. This triple screw Cummins-powered propulsion package with its shallow draft and redundancy is becoming the industry standard for work on the Inter-Coastal Waterway. Brian Paul will also have a pair of Cummins 6BT5.9 powered 60 kW gensets. Thanks to a good spell of fair weather the boat's hull and superstructure were finished in record time, says Inland Boatworks' Randy Lee. Owner Donald Stockstill, who also operates 11 crew boats, reports he has a third push boat in the planning stages.
