By special request, I kept a look out for the Tug boats Delta Linda and Delta Deanna at the 2008 San Francisco Fleet Week event. Delta Linda and her sister ship Delta Deanna are 105 ft. long, with a beam overall of 36.8 ft. and a draft of 13-17 ft. They are powered by a pair of Caterpillar 3516B diesels, providing a total of 4,400 bhp to their twin Ulstein 1650H Z-drive units, with 94.5 in. skewed Kaplan-style propellers in Ulstein high-performance nozzles.
The tugs are operated by Bay Delta Maritime of San Francisco located at Pier 15.
Used a Nikon D200 w/ a 70-300mm VR lens, and D50 w/ a 18-105mm VR lens.
