Boats sail through Jaxport

October 12 - Stevedoring company Portus has moved 14 aluminium crew boats through Jaxport's heavy lift and specialty cargo berth at its Blount Island Marine Terminal.

The boats, each of which weigh around 25,000 lb (11.3 tonnes) and measure 45 ft (13.7 m) long, sailed along the St. Johns River from St. Johns Ship Building in Palatka to Jaxport.

Portus' stevedores lifted each boat from the river before loading them one-by-one onto Thorco Shipping's multipurpose vessel Thorco Copenhagen.

The boats are being shipped to Maracaibo, Venezuela, where they will be used to transport oil refinery employees to and from offshore oil rigs.
