FOURTH FOR TMT CHRISTENED — The
El Rey, Trailer Marine Transport Corpora- tion's fourth triple-deck barge, departed
Jacksonville, Fla., on January 18 for its maiden voyage to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The El Rey (shown above), the final in a series of four mammoth triple-deck barges, was built in Portland, Ore., by the Marine and Rail Equipment Division of the FMC
Corporation. After being launched from
FMC's ways, the El Rey was towed from
Portland through the Panama Canal to join
Crowley's Trailer Marine Transport fleet op- erating in the Caribbean. Upon arrival in
Puerto Rico, christening ceremonies for the barge were held on January 24 at the TMT
Isla Grande Terminal in San Juan. The wife of the Governor of Puerto Rico, Kate Don- nelly de Romero, christened the El Rey.
Thomas B. Crowley, president and chairman of Crowley Maritime Corporation, Leo L.
Collar, James B. Rettig, and J. Alec Merriam, members of the Crowley Management Com- mittee, arrived in San Juan on January 21 for a week of activities in commemoration of Crowley Maritime Corporation's 10 years and TMT's 26 years of service to Puerto
Rico. The 580-foot by 105-foot by 57-foot vessel joins three identical triple-deck barges in TMT's roll-on/roll-off trailer service be- tween the U.S. Mainland and the Caribbean.
The El Rey and its sister vessels, La Reina,
EI Conquistador, and La Princesa, are the largest ro/ro barges in the world. Each car- ries up to 374 forty- and forty-five-foot trailers. Triple-deck loading ramps at both
Jacksonville and San Juan permit the mam- moth vessels to be completely unloaded and reloaded in as little as eight hours. They are towed by modern 9,000-hp oceangoing tug- boats.
