  • Turecamo Coastal & Harbor Towing Corporation of New York recently added the 3,900-bhp Joan Turecamo (shown above and on the cover) to its growing fleet of modern tugboats. The new vessel, classed +A1 "Ocean Towing Service" by the American Bureau of Shipping, was built by Matton Shipyard in Cohoes, N.Y., a Turecamo subsidiary.

    Intended for use in the firm's general towing service, she is 114 feet 8 inches long with a beam of 32 feet 2 inches, depth of 16 feet 8 inches, and normal operating draft of 13 feet. Fuel capacity is 57,300 gallons.

    Propulsion power is provided by twin GM Electro-Motive Division 16-645-E6 diesel engines, each rated 1,950 bhp at 900 rpm.

    The reverse/reduction gears are Falk model 2435, and the 120- inch, 3-bladed stainless-steel propellers were supplied by Coolidge.

    Capable of attaining a freerunning speed of 14 knots, the tug is constructed with an upper pilot house that affords unobstructed vision over large petroleum barges that she is designed to push. In addition to her full pushing capability, the 192-gt vessel is equipped with an Almon A. Johnson series 229 towing winch. The electrohydraulic capstan is a New England Trawler model X1524; steering gear is Frydenbro model HS-20 with ITT Decca Marine controls.

    The vessel is fully automated with Hose-McCann equipment, and is fitted with the most modern navigation and communication gear. ITT Decca Marine supplied the Loran C model 708, autopilot model DP 752-G, two RM 914C radars with one slave unit, gyrocompass model MB 12, and LAZ 43 depth finder. The direction finder is a Benmar ADF 168; Motorola provided the 55/75 VHF and the SSB radios.

    Air-conditioning is by Dunham- Bush, and coatings were supplied by International Paint.

    Company president Bart Turecamo stated, "We plan to use the Joan Turecamo in c o n j u n c t i on with our new 100,000-barrel oil barge Marie Tilton." The Turecamo company provides a wide range of towing services, from ship docking to coastal towing, operating from the Great Lakes to the Caribbean.
