WOODEN MOTOR SHIPS UNDER CONSTRUCTION
The St. Helens Shipbuilding Co.,
St. Helens, Ore., owned by the Chus.
R. McCormlck Co. interests of San
Francisco, have under construction
at their shipyard two five-masted
auxiliary power schooners, designed
for the lumber trade of the Pacific
Coast.
One of theso schooners now more
than 70 per cent complete, is to be
called the City of Portland. She will
The cargo will be handled with four
regulation steam winches with 130
pound marine boilers.
The auxiliary power plant of these
vessels will consist of two 4-cylln-der
Uolinder engines of the seml
Piesol type, each unit being 320 H.

part of February. The other, about
five per cent complete, has the ways
already built. The vessels are dupli
cates. The City of Portland is one of the
largest wooden vessels ever built and
is tho largest wooden, motor-driven
boat in the world. This ship is 290
feet over all, 44-foot beam, and 22
feet moulded depth. Two million
feet of lumber will be used In the
construction of each vessel.
The advantage of auxiliary power
iu a lumber schooner are niuny and
well justify the oust of engine instal
lation. The saving in towage and
the tima saving in the calm belts,
and the greater speed at which the
vessel travels are all dominant fact
ors in Increasing the ship's earnings
and utility. The saving in crew costs
can be seen when only throe men are
required in the engine room.
