CCGS Samuel Risley
CCGS Samuel Risley - Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada - April 24, 2003
In 2003 CCGS Samuel Risley carried an SP Barge (Self-Propelled). This craft was powered by diesel, azimuthal drive (ZED-Drive to we Canadians), weighed about 9 tonnes. It was used mostly to service small buoys in areas too shallow for the ship. There are two hydraulic winches just ahead of the control console and an A-Frame forward to lift buoys, chains and stones/anchors. It also had tanks and pumps to carry liquid cargo to lighthouses, although that function was seldom used especially as lighthouses were being automated. Here the barge has been lifted from its storage position on the starboard side of the Risley in preparation for launching on the port side. The Liebherr crane had a Safe Working Load of 15 tons and was/is a lovely piece of machinery.
