Two boats working for the same company.  Mary Turecamo dates from 1983, and built in NYS at Matton Shipyard, their last build.  She’s 107′ x 32′ and brings 4300 hp to her work.

 

Doris Moran dates from around the same time, but built by McDermott in Louisiana. 

She’s a bit larger and more powerful than Mary, at 118′ x 34 and 4610 hp.

 

It’s always a joy to see them at work.

All photos, WVD, who has more Matton and Turecamo boats from the Canal Society archives coming soon.
