When coal was the fuel for marine vessels, steam engines by Skinner were first in per- formance and first in prefer- ence. Now that owners are considering a return to avail- able, affordable coal, Skinner know-how is only a phone call away. Ask Dick Whiting how coal power fits in your future.

Additions To Tidewater
Fleet Valued At More
Than $50 Million
Tidewater Inc. has announced that its marine subsidiary, Tide- water Marine Service, Inc., is sup- plementing its global offshore oil and gas support fleet by 20 ves- sels having an aggregate cost of approximately $50.6 million.
Fourteen vessels costing about $31 million have recently been ac- quired as a supplement to the 1981 fiscal year capital spending program that ended on March 31, 1981. Included in the fiscal year 1981 additions are four towing/ supply vessels (two of which are leased with an option to buy), three supply vessels, one crew- boat, two anchor handling tugs, three oceangoing tugs (which are leased with options to buy), and one construction barge. In addi- tion, six vessels costing about $19.5 million have recently been committed to construction. Two are towing/supply vessels, two supply vessels, one geophysical vessel, and one fuel barge.
Tidewater's fiscal year capital spending program for marine equipment originally called for the delivery of 20 new vessels at a total contract price of $31.4 million by March 31, 1981. Eight- een of the 20 vessels have been delivered and the remaining two, inland tugs, are expected to be delivered soon. The new acquisi- tions and construction commit- ments, when combined with the original fiscal 1981 program, ag- gregate a total capital expendi- ture of about $82 million.
