Iowa Marine Delivers M/V Tony H
Iowa Marine Repair, Keokuk, Iowa, recently delivered the M/V Tony H (shown above) to Morris Harbor Service, Morris, 111. The Tony H is the first of a new model developed by Iowa Marine and designed by Marine Power Inc., Gulf Breeze, Fla. She is particularly suited for the rough conditions of harbor work and economical operation.
The Tony H is named for Tony Hoenig, shipyard superintendent for Iowa Marine at their Keokuk shipyard, who has been with the company since its founding over 10 years ago.
The vessel is 50 feet by 20 feet by 7 feet with a 24-foot eye level.
The hull is 5 /16-inch steel with a headlog of H-inch and all outboard corners of 3/4-inch. Bow corners are also protected with formed Morse rubber bumpers mounted on '4-inch steel plates.
Hull construction is of side tank design, giving her a 6,000- gallon fuel capacity in three tanks on each side. Fresh water capacity is 1,000 gallons and lube oil capacity is 300 gallons.
The twin Cummins NT-855 main engines were supplied by Great Plains Diesel of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, giving her a total of 570 hp at 1,800 rpm. The Twin Disc MG-514 gears, with a 5:1 ratio, turn Columbian 52-by-46- inch stainless steel propellers.
Power is supplied by a single 15-kw Lima generator with a Duetz two-cylinder air-cooled diesel engine. The vessel is designed to operate completely without power if necessary or desired.
She has 10-ton Nabrico winches which can be converted to hand operation. She is equipped with two Carlisle Finch 14-inch incandescent searchlights, one of which is operated on the 12-volt system.
Steering is a mechanical over hydraulic follow up system designed by Iowa Marine with two variable volume Vickers pumps driven off the main engines.
The Tony H is also equipped with a Regency Polaris MT-5500 radio-scanner, Ray Jefferson 312 hailer-intercom, Dayton air compressor, Well-Troll fresh water pressure system, Teel bilge and fire pump, Jabsco 12-volt automatic diaphragm bilge pump from stuffing box segregated from deep bilges, Morse cutlass bearing, Kahlenberg stuffing boxes, Sturm bearings, and Microphor septic system.
She has an open bar grating fleet deck allowing for easy access to empty barges. Since the Tony H is used strictly as a harbor vessel, the lower deck cabin as well as the Texas cabin are utilized as deck lockers, but are so designed that they could quick-ly and easily be converted into galley and quarters.
Iowa Marine has capabilities of constructing vessels up to 75 feet in length and 1,600 hp. They also build other standard marine equipment as well as specialized items, such as the Montrose- Nauvoo ferry.
