MonArk's new 26-foot survey boat is powered by two Outboard Marine Corp. "sea drives" rated each at 155 hp, yielding a top speed of approximately 32 knots.

MonArk Delivers Survey Boat

To Corps Of Engineers

The U.S. Army Corps of Engi- neers in Rock Island 111., recently took delivery of a new 26-foot sur- vey boat designed and built by

MonArk Boat Company's Workboat

Division in Monticello, Ark.

The 26-footer is an all-aluminum vessel which will be used primarily for channel reconnaissance and hy- drographic survey of the Mississippi

River ship channel between Lock

No. 22 at Saverton, Missouri and

Lock No. 10 at Guttenberg, Iowa.

The boat features a cathedral plan- ing hull and is powered by two Out- board Marine Corp. (OMC) "sea drives" rated each at 155 horsepow- er yielding a top speed of approxi- mately 32 knots.

In selecting the design for their new boat, the Corps of Engineers was primarily concerned with the need for a spacious enclosed cabin to house and operate the state-of- the-art survey equipment which was installed by the customer.

The large enclosed cabin, offered as a standard with the MonArk 2610-C, allowed for installation of formica work counters port and starboard, storage compartments, and an enclosed toilet.

For support during survey opera- tions, the 26-footer is equipped with two 5-kw generators, 13,500-BTU air conditioner, depth sounder, cab- in insulation, A/C and D/C electri- cal receptacles, and stowage com- partments.

Total fuel capacity of 150 gallons allows for extended survey opera- tions on the Mississippi without in- terruption for refueling.
