Tuesday, December 17, 2002
September 11 set things back all over the world and especially in New York. But now a maritime firm in that city has a new tug building at Thoma-Sea Boat Builders in Houma Louisiana.The model bow tug, essentially a sister ship to one delivered last January, is a 3400 HP ocean-going tug, 100 by 32 feet with a molded depth of 13 feet 9 inches. Designed by Frank Basil's Entech and Associates of Houma LA the boat will be powered by a pair of 16-cylinder Cummins KTA50 main engines rated for 1700 HP at 1800 RPM. The engines will turn into Rentjes WAF-772 gears with rations of 7.087:1 and turning 87-inch Sound propellers in 88-inch Rice nozzles. The boat is designed for a bollard pull of 60 tons. Accommodations will be provided for up to eight people. Tankage includes 85,000 US gallons for fuel, 20,000 gallons water and 1500 gallons for lube oil. A pair of 50 kw gen sets are powered by Cummins series 6BT 5.9 litre engines with the same engine providing power for the towing winch. Delivery is anticipated for late January or early February 2003.
