    Gulf Craft delivers Seacor crew boat

    Yard News // November 21, 2003
    In late October, Gulf Craft of Patterson Louisiana delivered a new crew boat to Seacor Marine of Houston Texas.

    The 175ft by 30ft Seth McCall is powered by four Cummins KTA-50-M2 diesel engines rated at 1,800 BHP @ 1900 RPM and each coupled with a Twin Disc, model MG-6848 SC, 2.47:1 reduction ratio gear. Each engine turns a Hamilton HM-811 water jet providing a light ship speed of 31 knots and fully loaded speed of 26 knots.

    The boat is firefighting capable with a pair of SKUM 5,300 GPM pumps feeding monitors on the stern quarters. This location allows the stern of the vessel to be directed to the fire keeping the crew and wheelhouse at a safe distance.
