Halter Delivers Two New Crewboats To Command Marine, Inc.
Halter Marine, Inc., New Orleans, La., delivered two new 101- foot all aluminum crewboats, the Pamela Ann and the Patricia Ann, to Command Marine, Inc. of Lafayette, La.
Both were purchased from Halter's stock boat program and delivered to their owner within 21 days of contract signing. They are working out of Intracoastal City, La., and Freeport, Texas.
Jim Mello, president of Command Marine said, "Both of our customers have commented favorably on the performance of these vessels as compared to other crewboats that have worked for them." He added, "Crew acceptance of the boats is outstanding and their seakeeping ability is superior." Each boat is 101 feet 6 inches long, with a 21-foot 3-inch beam, and 9-foot 6-inch depth. Normal operating draft is 5 feet, 6 inches.
Power is provided by three Detroit Diesel 12V71TI diesel engines developing 510 hp each at 2,100 rpm. They turn 3-inch stainless steel shafts through Twin Disc M6514 reduction gears of 2:1 ratio. The two engine control stations on each boat are equipped with Kobelt 2544 and 2545 air controls.
A prominent feature on each boat is a 55 by 17-foot aft deck which can carry up to 30 tons of cargo. This capacity coupled with the boat's ability to carry 55 passengers gives them an unusually high payload for vessels this size.
The new boats each are equipped with a Decca 150 radar, Motorola single-sideband radio, a Danforth compass, and two Sailor VHF radios.
They can carry 2,478 gallons of fuel oil, 511 gallons of potable water, and 4,681 gallons of ballast water.
The Pamela Ann was named after Mrs. Jim Mello, and the Patricia Ann was named after Mrs. Don Goodwin, whose husband is Command's operations manager.
Command Marine currently operates nine 180-foot supply boats, three 110-foot surface e f f e ct "Dashboats," and the two new 101-foot crewboats.
The Pamela Ann and Patricia Ann were built at Halter's Chalmette division, one of a group of shipyards owned and operated by Halter in the Southeastern U.S.
