U.S. Coast Guard Patrol Boats

To Be Repowered With Cat Engines

NEWPORT NEWS CHRISTENING—Newport News Shipbuilding,

Newport News, Va., recently christened the USS Asheville (SSN-758), the second submarine built in the yard's modular outfitting facility. The eve- ning christening ceremonies for the 360-foot Los Angeles Class submarine were attended by U.S. Senator Jesse Helms of North Carolina and Vice

Adm. Daniel L. Cooper, Assistant Chief of Naval Operations (Undersea

Warfare). Mrs. Dorothy Coble Helms, the Senator's wife, christened the vessel.

The U.S. Coast Guard has awarded Caterpillar a $5.7-million contract to repower 43 cutters with

Cat 3412 marine engines and Twin

Disc 518-M marine gears. Each 83- foot patrol boat uses two of the Cat engines, each rated at 750 hp. The contract also calls for one additional engine with gear to be used for instruction at the Coast Guard

Training Center in Yorktwon, Va.

The Cat engines are expected to almost double the life until overhaul of the units being replaced, accord- ing to a company spokesman. Cat

Dealer Holt Company of Louisiana will be the subcontractor for pack- aging the marine enigne, marine transmission and associated con- trols and shipping the modules to

Coast Guard distribution points.

These cutters are steel-hulled with aluminum superstructures and are used for port security, search and rescue. The A Series was constr- cuted in 1960-61, the C Series in 1961-67, and the D Series in 1970.

There are no discernible differ- ences among the various series of

Point Class vessels.
