Washburn & Doughty opens doors to public

East Boothbay, Maine, shipbuilder Washburn & Doughty has launched the CATHERINE C. MORAN, a 98 ft, 500 Ton, Z-Drive Tug under construction for the Moran Towing Corporation.

Construction on the CATHERINE C. MORAN began shortly after a fire in July 2008 destroyed W&D's main construction building. The vessel was built outdoors through the winter in the company's East Yard. Constructing the vessel in the East Yard necessitated a crane launch, which was a first for the shipyard. Donjon Marine of Hillsdale, New Jersey provided the CHESAPEAKE 1000 for the launch.

Today, Washburn & Doughty gave the public its first glance of its rebuilt yard--and TV station WCSH6 took the tour.
