Rozema Boat Works has delivered a pair of 46-ft. boats to Clean Gulf Associates
of New Orleans, identical to another built for CGA in 1998. The boats, Bastian Bay
and Grand Bay, are based in Houma and Venice, La.
The boats are 46 ft., with a beam of 16 ft. and a draft of 4 ft. 2 in. Each is powered by twin CAT 3196 diesels rated at 660 hp, driving 34 x 42 in. props through Twin Disc 5114-IV reduction/reversing gears for a response speed of 28 knots and a loaded speed of 19 knots.
The Clean Gulf boats feature LORI brush skimming systems on both the port and starboard sides, a Desmi DOP 160 offload pump, a built-in dispersant system, a 2,000-lb. capacity mast and boom, and a 65-barrel recovered-oil tank. Each carries 950 gallons of fuel and 100 gallons of water.
Rozema is also building two similar response vessels for South East Alaska Petroleum Response Organization (SEAPRO), based in Ketchikan.
