  • Camarc, Ltd. and Kvichak Marine Industries have teamed up to design and build an all-aluminum 72-ft. (22-m) pilot boat. The new boat, Sabine Bank Pilot, was recently delivered to the Sabine Pilots Service of Groves, Texas and will have a pilotage route that extends 20 miles off the Texas coast and 56 miles up the Sabine-Neches River.

    Twin Detroit Diesel 16V2000 engines rated for 1,285 bhp each at 2,100 rpm provide power for the Sabine Bank Pilot and Hamilton HM651 waterjets were chosen as the propulsors. This combination will allow excellent maneuverability, a top speed of 28 knots, and a cruising speed of 26 knots.

    The "Popsafe" fendering system will be used to protect the vessel hull while boat and pilot transfers are made. Protection and recovery of the pilots in the event of a man overboard will be enhanced with a combination jet guard and stern platform.

    Also, a forward raised pilot boarding p l a t f o rm with articulating outboard ends will improve pilot transfers.
