The Medina is powered by a

General Motors Electro-Motive Di- vision 20-645E7 diesel engine with an output of 3,600 bhp at 900 rpm, producing a top speed of 16 knots. Electrical power is sup- plied by three Caterpillar D353 diesels driving Kato 300-kw, 480- volt generators. A Schottel 48- inch bow thruster is driven by a

Detroit Diesel 12V-71N engine rated 400 bhp at 2,100 rpm. The bow thruster is interfaced with the Sperry autopilot system to permit automatic heading keep- ing with the main engine shut down.

The deck machinery hydraulic system was designed and fur- nished by MARCO Seattle, and is powered by a dedicated Caterpil- lar D353E engine rated 470 bhp at 1,225 rpm. A standby main hydraulic pump drive is installed on the forward end of the port auxiliary generator, while an 80- hp electric motor/pump unit pro- vides power for the anchor wind- lass, forward deck Husky crane, and speedboat davits. A MARCO

WS444 Superseine winch and 54- inch power block with power grip are principal features of the deck machinery complement.
