Operating a tugboat can be a game of inches. Well, Dakota Creek Industries crews are inching closer to completion of this tugboat on the Anacortes waterfront. The Crowley Maritime Type 750 “Legacy Class” Articulated Tug and Barge combination is the largest ever designed. The three 330,000 bbs barges are being constructed at VT Halter, Pascagoula, Mississippi and the three tugs at Dakota Creek. The tugs, designed by Naviform in Vancouver, BC, have unique propulsion pod housing. The two Wartsila C32 Main Engines and the controllable pitch propellers produce a total of 16,000 HP. Each engine/propeller is arranged in separate engine rooms and is capable of runing on heavy fuel oil. The M/V Legacy is scheduled for completion in November 2010; M/V Liberty, June 2011; M/V Legend, March 2012.
