Eastern Marine Delivers Trinity River To Transportation Resources
Eastern Marine, Inc. of Panama City, Fla., recently delivered the 166-foot supply vessel Trinity River to Transportation Resources, Inc. of Houma, La. The vessel, built at Eastern's shipyard in Panama City, is the fourth of a five vessel package which includes the Leaf River, Pine River, Roaring River, Trinity River and Tellico River.
The Trinity River has a 38- foot beam, a 13-foot depth, and a loaded draft of 11 feet. A clear deck cargo area of 110 by 28 feet can carry up to 550 long tons of cargo.
The vessel is powered by two Detroit Diesel 16V-149 engines delivering a total of 1,800 hp.
The engines are fitted with Twin Disc reduction gears and achieve a speed of over 12 knots. The Trinity River is equipped with a Schottel model S-152L bow thruster driven by a Detroit Diesel 8V-71 engine.
Electric service is provided by Delco generators driven by GM 6-71 85-kw engines. Navigation equipment includes Furuno radar, Stevens SSB, Cybernet International VHF, Micrologics Loran C, and an Impulse depth indicator.
Eastern Marine is a growing company which has earned a reputation in recent years as a builder of high quality vessels with exceptionally good workmanship.
The company opened their Panama City shipyard in 1978. This 13-acre facility has over 1,300 feet of water frontage and is used primarily to construct medium to small sized boats. Fifteen miles east of the Panama City yard, the company opened another shipyard in Allanton, in 1981. This facility is substantially larger and is used to construct larger vessels. It comprises 135 acres with more than 5,200 feet of water frontage.
In addition to the vessels for Transportation Resources, Eastern Marine also contracted to build eight 192-foot anchor handling tug/supply vessels at the Allanton yard for Seahorse Inc., of Morgan City, La. Four of these vessels have already been delivered to the owner. One of them, the Long Beach Seahorse, is pictured in this article.
