News crew quarters for six, a galley, and lavatory facilities. The engine com- partment is accessible by large water- tight hatches in the aft deck, permitting ready access to the machinery for ser- vicing, or for removal of engines, or any large components should that be necessary in the life of the boat. The aft deck is strengthened for carrying deck cargo, with a design capacity of 20 tons. Khulood is propelled by twin high-speed diesels, each driving a five- bladed propeller through a reverse- reduction gearbox. On trials conduct- ed in January, 2001 Khulood demon- strated excellent performance in every category, with a top speed of 22.8 knots, excellent high-speed and low- speed manoeuvrability, and a very sta- ble and comfortable ride.

Horizon Shipbuilding, Inc. recently delivered Belle Watling, a 72-ft. (21.9 m) Z-drive tug to Dixie Towing of Jack- sonville, Fla. The first azimuthing tug to be built at the Bayou La Batre shipyard,

Belle Watling was delivered 30 days ahead of its contractual delivery date.

Glowacki Engineering of Jacksonville provided the contract design for Dixie

Towing; Horizon's design staff complet- ed detail design.

The boat features a separate engine control room forward of the engine room. The Glowacki design provides for good deck stowage space and stowage below deck. The pilothouse is designed for 360-degree visibility and for working under a bow overhang when engaged in docking operations. The narrow pilothouse width is designed to enhance alongside and docking opera- tions. Glowacki Engineering has pre- pared an 85-ft. (25.9 m) Z-drive design exclusively for Horizon, which is similar in concept to Belle Watling. Horizon hopes to market its new 85-ft. (25.9 m) 1,800-2,000 hp design at a very compet- itive price.
