Northwest Marine Services Named Distributor Of Hamilton Marine Jets

Northwest Marine Services, Tukwila, Wash., recently announced the availability of Hamilton Marine Jet Propulsion units having horsepower requirements ranging from 50 hp up to 1,600 hp. A marine sales, engineering and service corporation, Northwest Marine Services is the Hamilton Jet distributor for commercial and pleasure boating for the states of Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Alaska and, on a non-exclusive basis, California.

The Hamilton Jet is powered by a conventional inboard engine. The pump draws water through a screened duct in the bottom of the hull and discharges it, under pressure, through a nozzle mounted in the transom. A deflector directs the flow of water for control in forward, neutral and reverse positions, while the nozzle controls the water jet for precision steering, even at "zero speed." Power braking is achieved by redirecting the water flow, producing no stress on machinery. In an emergency under full power, the unit's reverse bucket can be lowered to serve as a reverse thrust baffle for power braking.

The Hamilton Jet requires very little maintenance and simplifies basic servicing: no special tools are required to service the jet and only one point of the unit needs lubrication every 50 hours. These energyefficient jets have been chosen for slow speed propulsion in up to 80- ton vessels and for high-speed propulsion in up to 40-ton passenger, fishing and patrol vessels.

Northwest Marine Services also specializes in a variety of products related to the propulsion, maneuvering and control of ship and offshore structures. For more information and free literature, Circle 24 on Reader Service Card
