Next project about to get underway is a Motorized Aluminum Barge/Work Platform specifically designed for use in a mining company tailings dam.
The vessel will be fitted with a manual crane and be powered by a Perkins M92B engine with ZF 3.01:1 marine gear. Propeller size is calculated at 23″ x 23.5″ x 4B x 0.70(KCA), with Prop efficiency: 41.8%.
Designed mainly as a working platform to handle a maximum loading of 600kg it will also have excellent pull/push ability.
This very capable vessel with a top speed of 7 knots will be ideal for use in a Marina providing a stable working platform for general maintenance, boat engine removals etc.
Two fold-up 1 meter wide working platforms are fitted, one forward and the other extending 4 meters along the starboard side. These are designed to enable easy access when working on floating pipelines within the tailings dam.
The brief for this project was to supply a vessel suitable for passenger use but which could also carry up to two tons of cargo when necessary and with seating removed. Again we looked to Specmar Design for a suitable plan and CNC kitset.
Power needed to be big enough to push the boat along at reasonable speed when fully loaded and to enable high speed when running as a passenger service. Selected engine was Yanmar 6LPAM-STZP2 which has a rating of 315 HP @ 3,800 rpm. Drive fitted is the Mercruiser Bravo II-X sterndrive unit.
The cabin is built using epoxy/foam sandwich in order to keep boat weight down and for aesthetic reasons ie. nice rounded corners and better styling than can be attained easily using aluminum.
