Volume XV. Balboa Heights, C. Z., April 19, 1922. No. 36.

Canal Tug Assisting Two Ships in Distress.

The Panama Canal tug Gorgona is due to arrive at Balboa in the
night of April 19-20, towing the tanker W. J. Hanna, which she was
sent out to bring in from off the coast of Peru.

On the way back the Gorgona received a call for assistance from the
American steamer Derblay, aground in Manta Bay, Ecuador. Leaving
the Hanna at anchor temporarily, the tug endeavored to pull the
Derblay free but was unable to do so and continued to port with the
Hanna. Further orders with reference to the rescue of the Derblay
have not been received.



The Panama Canal Salvage Section.

The representative of the United Salvage Association, underwriters
in New York, who came to the Isthmus in connection with the salvag-
ing of the steamship Garfield in Colombian waters, expressed himself,
in conversation with the Marine Superintendent of The Panama
Canal, as "amazed at the wrecking equipment and wrecking ability
of The Panama Canal salvage section." He stated his belief that the
work of the section was equal to that of the foremost wrecking com-
pany in the United States.

The salvage equipment of the Canal consists primarily of, the wreck-
ing tug Favorite, supplemented by tugs, barges, floating cranes, etc.,
as may be needed, and a full supply of ground tackle, wire and chain
cable, diving equipment, and the other requisite material and personnel
for wrecking operations.

The Favorite is 195 feet in length over all, 180 feet between per-
pendiculars, with a beam of 43 feet and molded depth of 20 feet 6
inches. Her gross tonnage is 1,223 tons, and she has cargo space for
about 800 tons, in addition to which she can carry about 500 tons of
water. On account of her carrying a great amount of water ballast
she can lighten ship when necessary to operate in shoaler waters than
her ordinary draft would allow. This feature was of great value in
the work on the Garfield. The Favorite is now being converted from
a coal-burner to an oil-burner; with oil fuel she will be able to stay
away from port for as long as 30 days without the need of refueling.

The Favorite is equipped with a 25-ton boom forward and a 5-ton
boom aft, and fitted with a machine shop containing an air compressor,
power saw, cutter, shaper, punching machine, and other handy tools,
She carries a 200-kilowatt generator.

The pumps are an important factor and have been increased since
the Favorite was placed in the Canal service, to which she was trans-
ferred from wrecking service for the Navy, which used her on the
coast of France during the World War. Prior to that she was operated

The pumps on the Favorite now include 4 portable 12-inch centrif-
ugal gasoline-driven wrecking pumps and four 4-inch submersible
electric salvage pumps, of a total capacity of 2,440 tons of discharge

pumps which can be placed in service to augment this capacity.

(c) No cure, no pay. Fixed price dependent on value of ship and cargo and diffi-
