Eastern Marine Contracted
To Build Scallop Trawler
Eastern Marine, Inc., the diversified Florida- based shipbuilding firm, recently signed a con- tract with James A. Odlin, Cape Elizabeth,
Maine, to build an 88-foot steel scallop trawler vessel.
This latest addition, which will join Odlin's fleet in early 1986, has been designed by John
W. Gilbert Associates, Boston, Mass. The prin- cipal characteristics of the Odlin trawler are an 88-foot overall length, 23-foot breadth, and a 13-foot depth. In addition, the vessel will have a 10,900-galion fuel capacity, 1,860-gallon fresh- water capacity, a 300-gallon hydraulic capacity, and an iced fish hold capacity of 5,300 cubic feet.
The vessel will have accommodations for seven.
The single main engine will be a Caterpillar, model 3412, rated 620 bhp at 1,800 rpm driving a Columbian 65-inch diameter, four-bladed pro- peller through a Caterpillar 7231, 6:1 reverse reduction gear. The generating power will be furnished by two John Deere/Northern Lights, 30-kw generator sets, model M4219-D.
When completed, the Eastern Marine-built trawler will operate within the harsh and de- manding waters of the Northern Atlantic.
Eastern Marine, located in Panama City, Fla., is engaged in the design and construction of commercial fisheries vessels, cruise ships, fer- ries, inland and offshore tugs, towboats and barges, offshore support vessels, U.S. Military, and governmental agencies specialized ships and barges.
