Serodino Delivers Mv. Clyde To Logsdon Tug Service

Serodino Inc., Chattanooga, Tenn., recently delivered the 1,300 hp. mv. Clyde to Logsdon Tug Service, Beardstown, Ill.

The Super Tiger Class Model K vessel is certified under Subchapter M rules.

The Clyde is powered by twin Cummins QSK-19-M engines, developing a total of 1,300 hp. at 1,800 rpm., operating through Twin Disc MG-5222 gears at 4.03:1 ratio. The engines turn 52- by 44-inch four-blade propellers through 5-inch sleeved shafts.

The 60- by 24- by 8-foot hull, with 5-foot, 9-inch draft, is constructed of 1/2-inch plate throughout. Deck and bulkheads are 3/8-inch. Transverse framing is 5- by 3- by 3/8-inch on 24-inch centers. The inside motor mounts are continued fore and aft as solid sheets to divide the hull into three collision compartments, three fuel tanks (9,500 gallons), engineroom, three water tanks, and six stern compartments. All void tanks have high-level alarms with bilge piping.

A 110-gallon lube oil tank and a 110-gallon transmission oil tank are built into the hull.

The superstructure is constructed of 3/16-inch plate with 2- by 2-1/2- by 1/4-inch framing. Main-deck doors are watertight, and windows are aluminum with safety glass panes. Spartan quarters are insulated, paneled, heated and air conditioned and have poured-rubber flooring.

Two 40-kW John Deere MDDCA light plants furnish auxiliary electric power. Skipper follow-up lever controls with backup separately activate four flanking and two main rudders. The two hydraulic pumps are driven by electric motors. Standard equipment includes navigation lights, one incandescent and one Xenon searchlight, 40-ton Wintech electric winches, Schuyler rubber towknees, perimeter fenders, shore power plug-in and Fernstrum zero-knot coolers.

The first deck contains a 12- by 10-foot galley, a modest head with shower and Coast Guard-approved marine toilet. The second deck is storage space. There is a 3-foot space below the pilothouse to make an eye level of 28 feet.

The vessel has entered service joining two other Serodino-built vessels in Beardstown.
