Mid-Coast Marine, Inc. (formerly Nelson Log Bronc) of Coos Bay, Ore., recently delivered its first 65-foot, twin-screw tugboat, the Andy Head (shown right), to Alaska Timber Corporation.

The entire vessel is protected by extruded rubber "D" section fenders, plus extra protection on the bow to assist in the ship-docking process.
Main propulsion is provided by two Cummins KT2300M V-12 diesel engines equipped with air starting, driving 68-inch-diameter, four-bladed Coolidge propellers in Mid-Coast Marine nozzles through Twin Disc MG530, 6:1 reverse/reduction gears. Keel cooling for the main engines is provided by Fernstrum units.
Free-running speed on trials was 11 knots. The vessel has fuel capacity of 12,400 gallons and carries 3,000 gallons of fresh water.
Power and maneuverability in a small package are the prime characteristics of this heavy-duty workboat.
Engine and steering controls are provided at three locations.
Full follow-up hydraulic steering is installed, in association with a Sperry MK8 autopilot system.
Mathers air-operated engine controls are provided at the same locations — port and starboard in the pilothouse and at the aft tow winch station.

A 12- volt battery starting system is provided for the auxiliaries, as well as for emergency lighting and radio power.
