H u d s o n S h i p b u i l d e r s , Inc.
(HUDSHIP) recently delivered the M / V Charles Haun to Parker Towing Company, Inc. of Tuscaloosa, Ala.
The Charles Haun is an 85-foot by 34-foot by 10-foot 6-inch twin screw towboat. The vessel is powered by twin Fairbanks Morse 38D8 Vs six-cylinder diesel engines driving through MGI LST reverse/reduction gears. Auxiliary power is provided by Detroit Diesel 6-71N, 1,200-rpm generator sets rated at 75 kw each.
The boat can carry 34,000 gallons of fuel, 800 gallons of lube oil and 5,100 gallons of potable water, making it ideally suited f or the rough conditions of harbor work and the economical operation of the long tow. Maneuverability for the Charles Haun is p r o v i d e d through two 84-inch stainless-steel four-blade propellers, two steering rudders and four flanking rudders. The steering system was furnished by Skipper Hydraulics, Inc.
Deck machinery consists of two Beebe electric barge winches models 35RRC and 35LRC equipped with 130 feet of 7/s-inch, 6 by 37 galvanized wire rope, and two Skipper Hydraulics electric capstans.
The living accommodations are designed for maximum crew comfort. Staterooms are arranged to provide three two-man and two one-man facilities.
Parker Towing operates towboats and open hopper barges in the Warrior-Tombigbee, Coosa and the Alabama River areas and through the Gulf Intracoastal W a t e r w a y System. Capt.

The Charles Haun was designed by Townsend Marine Consultants of Georgetown, Conn., and will be operating on the Black Warrior and Tombigbee Rivers in Alabama.
