Myrick Marine Contracting Corporation, Savannah, Ga., put a newly acquired floating crane package to work this summer. The 130 foot long by 60 foot wide and 8 foot tall spud barge, named the Myrick 13060, uses 24-inch square spuds that are 92 feet long.

According to J. Robert Myrick Jr., president of the company, the barge has a coating system inside and outside and is in “like-new” condition. The crane is an American 9320 and was rebuilt by Mobro Marine at its yard in Green Cove, Fla.

“We have the crane set up with a 160 feet of boom, and with the barge as configured, we have 100% of the chart for this 250-ton crane,” says Myrick.

The pushboat used to push the barge is the newest to join Myrick Marine’s fleet. The 900-hp Grace Myrick is a twin-engine, 60- by 22- by 6.5-foot vessel, with a 30-foot eye level.

The Grace Myrick is operating under a Certificate of Inspection from the U.S. Coast Guard and has all applicable safety gear on board. Meeting all Subchapter M requirements, the Grace Myrick is able to perform assist work, standby work, agitation dredging, as well as general towing services in and around southern South Carolina, Georgia and Northern Florida.

A family-owned business, Myrick Marine is a full-service marine contractor that owns and operates an extensive fleet of floating marine construction equipment.
