Thursday, January 27, 2000
Breezeswept Bay Dock Works recently took delivery of a Packman 23 ft. landing craft designed and built by the William E. Munson Company, Mt. Vernon, Wash. The vessel wil be used for waterborne construction in the Florida Keys. Power is supplied by a single 225 hp Mercury Optimax outboard providing a 50 knot top speed and 30 knot cruise burning less than nine gph. A 2,500 lb. load capacity and 56 in. wide bow door allow for easy transportation of construction equipment to remote building sites. The large cargo deck and bow door also provide an excellent platform for diving operations.
Additional outfitting includes a console T-top with tinted windows, push knees, tow post, 75 gallon fuel system, four-way lifting eyes, remote spotlight, GPS, depth sounder, stereo system with CD player, flag mast and light green anti-fouling bottom paint.
