Peterson Builders Launches

The Captain Frank Medina

The second of a series of 1,200- ton/225-foot seiners being bulit by

Peterson Builders, Inc., Sturgeon

Bay, Wis., splashed into Sturgeon

Bay's waters on January 5, 1980, nearly three months ahead of schedule. The Captain Frank Me- dina (shown above) is owned by the Carolyn M. Corporation of

San Diego, Calif., whose president is experienced and well-known

Joe Medina Jr. The vessel will fish for Star-Kist and will fly the

U.S. flag. She is now in the final outfitting stages and a festive christening and commissioning ceremony will be held in the spring.

Of a completely new design prepared by Ivo (John) Zaninovich of Chula Vista, Calif., the Cap- tain Frank Medina will pack 1,200 tons of tuna in her 17 refriger- ated brine wells. She features the new MARCO "Superseine" model

WS444 winch and a newly de- signed MARCO hydraulic system which includes a 56-inch power block, servo operated control valves and a Caterpillar model

D353 prime mover. An auxiliary hydraulic system in the bow han- dles the anchor windlass, Husky deck crane and speedboat davits.

She will achieve speeds of over 16 knots from her single General

Motors EMD 20E7 engine driv- ing a five-blade 128-inch-diameter

Coolidge stainless-steel propeller through a Falk 5:1 reverse/ reduction gear. Mathers of Se- attle, Wash., supplied the engine and bowthruster controls. Her 48- inch Schottel bowthruster, driven by a GM Detroit Diesel 12V-71 engine, is controlled from either the port bridge wing or the crow's nest, and is interfaced with her

Sperry gyro and autopilot sys- tem to maintain a heading while in a set or drifting. Three Cater- pillar model D353 engines driving 300-kw Kato generators supply the Federal Pacific parallel switch- board. A Vilter refrigeration sys- tem is fitted, which includes four 8-cylinder compressors, over 28,000 feet of ammonia coils in the brinewells, and a brine circu- lating and transfer system utiliz- ing PACO pumps.

The Captain Frank Medina will be equipped for helicopter recon- naissance, including over 12,000 gallons of turbine fuel in double bottom tanks. Her electronic out- fit is most complete, comprising two Sperry MK127E radars, two

Hull model 2320 single-sideband radios (one with a 1-kw Northern linear amplifier), two Hy-Gain

VHF/FM radios, Northern emer- gency SSB, Magnavox satellite navigation receiver, Furuno scan- ning sonar and Baymar recording fathometer, Taiyo VHF and ma- rine band automatic direction finders, and Honor Marine tele- phone and public address systems.

A complete engine monitoring and alarm system was designed and built by Peterson Builders. Pro-

Line of San Diego supplied all the paints for the vessel, including epoxy and polyurethane coatings.

Under construction and await- ing spring launching is Peterson

Builders' third hull in this series, the F/V Jane. She is being con- structed for Venatun, S.A., own- ers of the lead ship of the class, the F/V Napoleon which is rap- idly setting a mark as one of the most successful new tuna boats to enter the fleet.

PBPs general manager Joe

Gagnon has announced that there is production space open for 1981 deliveries, subject to prior com- mitment. The Peterson yard is lo- cated in Sturgeon Bay, Wis. 54235.

APL Opens

New Orleans Office

According to T.J. Rhein, vice president, North America, Amer- ican President Lines has opened a full-service New Orleans, La., office.

The new office, located at Canal

Place One, will serve all of Lou- isiana, southern Mississippi, and southern Alabama. It will be headed by district manager Ross

Warner. 17
