COASTWORKER 35 / 37 /
Pleased to see the COASTWORKER 35 / 37
stretched to 39ft Coastworker Matador... on your website the
interesting thing is that she is towing.
This was a special barge built
in 70 days by Masters Ship-yard 250 tonne deadweight to carry a 850 tonne
cracker tube to the Cochin refinery . the biggest heavy lift in India. It was
Shipped from China.
Was off-loaded from a heavy load ship in cochin harbour
onto the barge and then moved some 25 kms by inland waters to a jetty some 8 kms
from the refinery.
This saved some 5 years of negotiations and expense of road
widening. Masters and Lots Shipping are the local experts at this.
Capt Phillip of Lots Shipping can expand on this. The Matador , has not
stopped work for more than two days since commission. I am certain more will be
built. South India is a coming scene.
The next Yacht will be the 345 in 4mm.
More boats 35/37/39 are on the agenda. Regards Bryan Thurlow
