Superior Boat Works

Superior Boat Works, Greenville,

Miss., has delivered the 149-passen- ger paddlewheeler Henrietta II to

Cape Fear Riverboats, Inc., Wil- mington, N.C.

The 85-foot excursion boat, with a beam of 26 feet, offers sightseeing luncheon or dinner tours on the

Cape Fear River near Wilmington.

Decorated inside and out to re- semble a vintage paddlewheeler, the

Henrietta II's propulsion system is a pair of Cummins 6BT5.9 diesel en- gines, supplied by Cummins Mid-

South, Jackson, Miss., which power hydraulic pumps that boost hydrau- lic pressure sufficiently to drive two hydraulic motors that turn a 16- foot-diameter split paddlewheel.

Each diesel engine develops 134 hp at 1,800 rpm. A pair of Newage 35- kw generators are also powered by the pair of Cummins engines. Both are keel cooled using Fernstrum equipment.

L ' - The new generation Concept radar systems from Kelvin Hughes provide a unique and flexible approach to ergonomic bridge layout.

Concept HR series has been developed to achieve total radar system integration in either existing vessels or bridge designs for the 90's.

The high-resolution monitor, keyboard and processor can be situated remotely in any configuration - either bulkhead, deck console, deck head or desk mounted, or can form one fully-integrated unit in which the monitor angles can be adjusted to suit operator preference. Additional remote monochrome or colour monitors can also be included in the Concept package.

L ...'.:-j. ••


Concept HR systems offer Relative

Motion, True Motion and ARPA facilities, combined with E-Plot II, an enhanced version of the unique Kelvin Hughes electronic plotting program. Identical positioning of keyboard controls for these features throughout the range assists operational confidence and familiarity.

Now, all ship data and status can be ideally zoned for instant assimilation, making Concept HR the perfect radar system for today's navigational realities. y^UQ ^^S? VRM 4-25nm
