All the work was done in-house by Curtin Maritime
Every inch of the crane was disassembled, sandblasted and painted
All new turning components including bushings, bearings, swing circle house rollers, hook rollers, and stump.

Every inch of the crane was disassembled, sandblasted, and painted, then put back together with all new turning components including bushings, bearings, swing circle house rollers, hook rollers, and stump.

We selected this crane because we could use the robust and proven reliability of a Lima 2400, combined with modern technology to make a digging machine unparalleled by others in its class.

The rebuild was completed in 4 months and involved a new custom house with brand new machinery including a Caterpillar C18 ACERT and all new systems, as well as a new cab with electronic over air controls to lessen the burden of continuous operating for our Leverman.

Lima 2400B Crane Rebuild Curtin Maritime

The sheet metal house was replaced with a fabricated steel house that is more conducive to the marine environment, and quieter for the crews working on the deck around it.  All the work was done in-house by Curtin Maritime.

Design-Build Vessel Conversion & Fabrication – Tugboat Sarah C

Curtin Maritime purchased the 65’ tugboat Peril Strait from Cambell Towing in 2007, a single screw logging support tug operating in Alaska. After the inspection and survey of several tugboats for sale, Curtin Maritime was able to recognize that this hull type was perfectly suited for the Combi Tug conversion Curtin Maritime had designed.
