Her dimensions are 141 feet keel, 30.8 feet beam, 9 feet depth of hold. She has steel floors 12 x 7/8ths inch between each alternate frame, also steel arch running from rudder post to fore foot with four steel straps on each side forward and aft. She has three 12 x 12 keelsons with four 10 x 12 on top and a steel strap in the shape of an arch running from engine to forefoot. Her deck beams have 26' centers with strong-back unbder each beam. This is one of the strongest built boats ever turned out of this port and is a credit to her builder as well as the owners.
