Arthur J. Yeend has been named assistant to the president of Campbell Industries, San Di- ego, Calif. 92112, with primary responsibilities in the area of de- velopment and improvements in the company's fishing vessel con- struction programs.
Although he has been absent for a few years, Mr. Yeend is no stranger to the San Diego water- front. He previously worked a total of 14 years for San Diego
Marine Construction Corp., a
Campbell subsidiary, heading up that shipyard as general manager when last with the firm. He has since managed the construction of a shipyard in Mexico, and served as president and chief op- erating officer for Trident Fisher- ies Group.
In his new role, it is anticipated that Mr. Yeend will contribute greatly to the future of Campbell
Industries, drawing on his vast experience in the shipbuilding and fishing industries.
Contract To Build
Fireboat For Detroit
Peterson Builders, Inc. of Stur- geon Bay, Wis., has been awarded a contract with the City of De- troit to construct and deliver a 77-foot high-speed aluminum fire- boat. The hull of the vessel, spe- cially designed for operation in the ice-filled waters of the Detroit
River and the surrounding Sea- way, will be about 78 feet long, 22 feet wide and 9 feet deep with a draft of less than 6 feet. The boat is designed for a speed of over 20 knots, and with all four fire pumps in operation can de- liver 9,700 gallons per minute.
Included in the firefighting gear on the boat are four, 4-inch deluge monitors and a 50-foot telescoping ladder tower which enables the vessel's captain to direct water down into burning ships or on shoreside installa- tions ; the ladder on the telescop- ing tower also permits access to and evacuation from waterfront buildings or ships. A foam system enables it to fight petroleum fires.
Unique features of the craft are stern propulsion jets and bow thruster nozzles which operate from the fire main. This feature enables the fire pump engines to augment the main engines and propellers, giving an additional speed boost to the craft in dash responses to fire calls. The bow thruster nozzles are of great ben- efit when maneuvering in close quarters.
Three of the vessel's pumps de- liver firefighting water at a pres- sure of 150 pounds per square inch; but a fourth pump, driven from one main propulsion engine, is rated at 400 pounds per square inch. This high pressure is nec- essary to provide protection to some of the towering buildings along Detroit's recently rebuilt waterfront.
Electrical power will be fur- nished by two 50-kw diesel gen- erator sets. All of the propulsion and generating engines, appro- priately, will be Detroit Diesel and include 12V-149 propulsion engines, 12V-71 main pump en- gines and model 3-71 generators.
The contract design of the ves- sel was prepared by John W. Gil- bert Associates, Inc. of Boston,
Mass., designers of several suc- cessful fireboats constructed in recent years.
The new vessel adds further to
PBI's aluminum building diver- sity, and supplements current contracts for construction of 50- foot and 65-foot aluminum patrol boats and 190-foot gunboats.
