Lady Debbie has an overall length of 113 feet 5*4 inches, beam of 26 feet, depth of 11 feet 2 inches, and design draft of 8 feet 6 inches. Her liquid capaci- ties include: fuel oil, 21,400 gal- lons ; lube oil, 500 gallons; potable water, 1,900 gallons; cargo water, 19,400 gallons; and ballast, 21,000 gallons. She can carry deck cargo of 77.25 long tons; clear deck area aft is 48 feet long by 20.5 feet wide, and forward between the stacks 15 feet long and 13.5 feet wide.
Main propulsion is by two GM
Detroit Diesel 16V92 engines, each rated 600 bhp at 1,800 rpm, with Mathers single-lever pneu- matic controls. Two 50-kw gener- ators are driven by Detroit Diesel 4-71N engines, producing 1207 208-volt, 3-phase, 60-Hertz power.
A central air-conditioning and heating system by Carrier is in- stalled in the forecastle house; it serves the pilothouse, crew quar- ters, heads, lounge, galley, and storeroom. Compressed air is pro- vided by two Quincy D310 com- pressors, each driven by a 2-hp electric motor.
The 300-barrel liquid mud or calcium chloride system consists of two pumps, each driven from the front of the 4-71 generator diesels through Funk 1:1, revers- ing clutched pump drives. A
Barnes 5-hp unit pumps effluent from the 430-gallon sewage tank to a valved outlet on the main deck. The main bilge pump is a
Barnes 25CCE, 15-hp unit with backup provided by the fire pump of the same model. Cargo water is transferred by a 5-hp Barnes 25CCE pump, with discharge in the forward main deck area. Fresh water service, with a 40-gallon hot water tank, is supplied by a 5-hp Barnes pressure set. The fuel oil transfer system consists of a 15-hp Barnes 25CCE pump that moves fuel from the aft tanks to the day tanks or to a valved deck outlet.
The USCG-approved steering system has two 71/2-gpm hydrau- lic pumps driven by 5-hp electric motors, one unit operating and one as standby at all times. The helm units are Char-Lynn model 211-1038 Orbitrols, one at the

Oil-free Cutless® rubber bearings stop water pollution, conserve oil.
In these days of fuel scarcity, leaky oil lubricated bearings waste energy and pollute our waterways. With Cutless water lubricated rubber bearings designed by
Lucian Q. Moffitt, Inc., there's no oil seal to fail. No lube oil to leak out and pollute the waterways. Any water will lubricate the
Cutless bearing ... fresh water, salt or sand-filled.
Exclusive "Water Wedge" channels molded into a tough BFGoodrich rubber liner keeps plenty of lubricating water flowing through the Cutless bearing.
Cutless bearings are available world- wide from yards and marine stores in a full range of shaft diameters and load capacities. Write us for engineering data.
