Burton Delivers 224-Foot Seiner, Third Of Seven For Van Camp
Burton Shipyard, Inc., Port Arthur, Texas, recently delivered the 224-foot tuna vessel Deolinda.
The steel-hulled tuna purse seiner is the third of a seven-vessel contract awarded to Burton by Van Camp Sea Food Co., a division of Ralston Purina Co., and is jointly owned by Van Camp and Capt.
Ray Medeiros. The purse seiner will operate primarily with the Pacific fleet, docked in San Diego, Calif., and will fish the Pacific Ocean for skipjack and yellowfin tuna.
The Deolinda measures 42 feet wide, with an 18-foot draft, and cruises at 16 knots. The vessel is designed to operate with a crew of 21, and is capable of carrying a 1,200 short-ton payload of frozen tuna.
The Deolinda will travel through the Panama Canal and into the Pacific, fishing the eastern Pacific waters before being introduced to the San Diego tuna fishing community.
The new tuna seiner is propelled by a turbocharged EMD marine diesel engine developing 3,600 shp at 900 rpm. The 20- cylinder engine drives a 132- inch-diameter, f i v e - b l a d e stainless- steel propeller, built by Avondale, through a Falk 5.033:1 reduction/ reversing gear. Shaft speed development is rated at 179 rpm. Auxiliary power for the vessel is provided by three Caterpillar D-353 TA diesels with 300- kW Kato brushless generators.
The ship's bow thruster is a Bird Johnson model 10/35/FP with direct Caterpillar drive.
A passive stabilizer has been incorporated into the hull struc- ture and was engineered by John J. McMullen Associates. Fishing gear and hydraulic equipment are by Marco and include a model WS444 purse seine winch and the Puretic power block model B56- 61990-185. A Whaley model B- 102-H hydraulic ring stripper is also provided.
The ammonia systems utilize Vilter components, subcontracted by Refrigeration Systems of New Orleans, La.
Navigational aid and communications equipment consist of a Magnavox 1102 satnav receiver, Furuno FRJ-100 and DRA-1064 radars, FE812 depth sounder, FDK-245 ADF and scanning sonar.
Other nav/com gear includes Sperry MK 37 gyrocompass, gyropilot, Furuno weather recorder model FAX 143, and a broad assortment of radio communications equipment.
A helicopter rides on the pad located on the wheelhouse top. A private stateroom is provided for the pilot and his mechanic, who also have a workroom on the boat deck.
Five outboard chase boats are stored on both the boat deck and the upper deck. The diesel powered skiffs are from Mauricio & Sons, San Diego.
The Deolinda is also fitted with a Red Fox model 750M sanitation system.
The vessel is equipped to stay at sea for as long as three months. Burton expects delivery of the fourth tuna vessel, the Lone Wolf, to be in May 1982.
