Ocean crane barge Thomas W is towed during its 52-day journey from California to New York

After a 5,233 nautical mile tow of the ocean crane barge Thomas W from Long Beach, California through the Panama Canal, the Miss Lis reached its destination in the Hudson River, New York. The journey took 52 days. Tug and tow departed Long Beach during the first full week of August and arrived in New York in late September. Laborde Products repowered this engine with twin Mitsubishi S12R-MPTA engines rated at 2,800 bhp.

The 225' L x 78' W x 15' D, ABS +A1 Ocean crane barge, outfitted with a 400 T Whirley with a 150' boom, and laden with three smaller flat deck barges, was destined for the new Tappan Zee Bridge Project in New York. The barges will be working for the Joint Venture group to build the new $3.1 billion, 3.1 mile, twin span cable-stayed bridge across the Hudson River. This project, scheduled for completion in 2018, is the single largest bridge construction project in New York's history.

In 2007, Tradewinds Towing with Laborde repowered the Miss Lis, an 82' L x 28.3' W x 11.2' D tug, with twin Mitsubishi engines. It was originally powered by twin turbocharged GM12V149 engines rated at 1,900. During the re-power, the Miss Lis was also fitted with Reinjes WAF562 4.5:1 reduction gears to 62.3" x 77" Nautican propellers in fixed kort nozzles and triple rudders.
