Trivia: What is an AHT ?
Trivia: What northern
constellation is this?
Ans
West Coast Towing, Salvage &
Transportation Companies
It's sometimes tough to say if a company is
on the east coast or west coast today. Foss
is traditionally a Pacific Northwest company.
But the acquisition of Constellation Tug
expanded its operations to the east coast.
Crowley has its corporate headquarters in
Florida, but has major offices in California,
Washington State and Alaska. The
boundaries of operation become even more
complex with so many U.S. companies
handling international operations.
Below, we've provided links to west coast
tug and towing companies.
How thick is the shell plating in your
pilothouse... 3/16" thick? Maybe 1/4" thick?
Naturally, it depends on the service your
boat was built for. The picture above shows
the 17" thick armor on the conning tower of
the U.S.S. New Jersey. Battleships were
typically given armor on their vital areas that
could defeat or deflect incoming fire equal to
their own main batteries. The New Jersey
was outfitted with 16" guns. If you can
imagine the kinetic energy of a 16"
armor piercing round




             that weighs as                                   
much as a sub-compact screaming through
the air at over 2,000 feet per second, the
armor scheme is plausible, even if incredible
to behold. Follow this
link to get a better
insight into the engineering aspects of the
U.S.S. Massachusetts, New Jersey's
smaller and slower predecessor.
