Pusher for Blessey
Kody Marine of Harvey, La. began construction of a powerful push boat for
Blessey Marine. "It will be similar to the
Dreama Klaiber and the Walter E.
Blessey Jr." says Blessey's Mitch Jones, "With the same propulsion package and four deck layout, but it is longer and

(28.9 x 9.1 x 3.9 m) and the Walter, launched in mid-2002, is longer and wider at 110 x 32 x 11.5 ft. (33.5 x 9.7 x 3.5 m). The new boat will add still more to the dimensions at 120 ft. long with a 34-ft. (10.3-m) beam and a 12.5-ft. (3.8-m) molded depth. Jones explains that the additional beam gives the boat a shal- lower draft while the increased length gives improved performance. All three vessels are built with the same proven main engine package of a pair of 16- cylinder Cummins KTA50 M2 engines, delivering a total of 3200 hp (2,388 kW) for continuous duty at 1,800 rpm. The as yet unnamed new vessel is scheduled for delivery in April of 2004.

Hy-Line Cruises, a division of
Hyannis Harbor Tours, Hyannis, Mass., has received a new 300-passenger, high- speed catamaran from Gladding-Hearn
Shipbuilding, the Duclos Corporation.
This is the third Incat-designed fast ferry built by the shipyard for the Cape Cod tourism company, and the 27th high- speed catamaran built by Gladding-
Hearn. The M/V Grey Lady replaces the smaller Grey Lady II and provides year-round passenger service between
Hyannis and Nantucket Island.
The new, all-aluminum ferry is 144 ft. (43.7 m), with a 35-ft. (10.6 m) beam and draws 6.5 feet (2 m). It is powered by four Cummins KTA50M2 diesel engines, each delivering 1.800 bhp at 1,900 rpm. The vessel is propelled by four Hamilton HM651 water jets through Reinjtes WVS730D gearboxes.
The ferry's top speed is over 36 knots when full loaded at a deadweight of 40 tons, said Peter Duclos, president of the
In order to improve passenger com- fort. the vessel is equipped with a
Vosper/MDI active, motion-control and autopilot system. A motion sensor acu- ates a computer in the wheelhouse to adjust the two trim tabs, reducing the motion of the vessel by as much as 60 percent. Interior accommodations include Beurteaux seating, a cocktail bar. heating and air conditioning and four heads.
