Triple-Engine Tug From Rodriguez

Thursday, February 02, 2006
In mid-January Rodriguez Boat Builders Inc. of Bayou LaBatre Alabama installed three Cummins KTA38 M0 diesels in the finished hull of a new 90 by 32-foot tug for Hughie L. Cheramie, Inc. of Galliano Louisiana. With the engines installed in the new hull the already completed steel work for the deckhouse was lifted into place and the tug showed its final shape. Finishing would take another three months with delivery to the owners scheduled for April. Except for the engines and the owner supplied double-drum towing winch the boat is a virtual sister ship to the Gloria G. Cherami built at Rodriguez a few years ago. Electrical service will be supplied by two Cummins 4BTA 60 kw generator sets. The boat will be ABS load line inspected. The three Cummins mains will generate 850 hp each at 1800 RPM for a combined 2550 hp driving the boats three props. This will be the seventh boat that Rodriguez has built for Huey Cheramie.
