Moss Point Yard Delivers

Two Supply Boats

Moss Point Marine, Inc., Moss

Point, Miss., delivered two supply vessels, bringing to nine the num- ber of offshore work boats and barges the new shipbuilder has delivered in its first year of op- eration. The Gulf Coast shipyard also announced the signing of a contract for construction of two 250-foot by 72-foot by 16-foot off- shore deck barges.

Included in the recent deliver- ies were a 173-foot supply vessel for Golden Gulf Marine to be op- erated by Bosun-JMJ of New Or- leans, and a 114-foot supply ves- sel for Sea Mar, Inc. of Lafayette.

The 173-foot M./V Golden Girl is the second of 12 vessels contract- ed by Golden Gulf for construc- tion by Moss Point Marine. The 114-foot M/V Cape San Bias is the second such supply boat of a two-boat contract for Sea Mar.

The two 250-foot deck barges, which will be delivered later this year, will be built on Moss Point

Marine's new tilt beam launch system that is capable of han- dling up to 300-foot vessels.

The Golden Girl has a fuel ca- pacity of approximately 57,000 gallons, 1,500 barrels of liquid mud capacity, and 3,600 cubic feet of dry mud. Her deck load capacity is 550 tons and the ves- sel will accommodate a crew of 16 persons. The Cape San Bias has a fuel capacity of 23,700 gal-

TTS systems are both practical and economi- cal, offering immediate increases in productivity.

Our panel and section assembly lines can be used to build any kind of ship, barge or offshore structure, regardless of your yard size. Two to ten man-hours per ton can be realistic produc- tion figures.

Our shape fabrication lines dramatically re- duce material handling costs. And our shot blast and paint processing systems clean and prime steel efficiently.

By using TTS systems, you'll realize improved material handling, production flexibility and im- proved working conditions, without cumbersome and costly equipment. And we build to your re- quirements and suit your existing shop floor.

TTS can assist you in reducing costs in the 80's; we have done so for others the world over, again and again.
