Mazapeta is fully operational and currently operates in San Francisco Bay as a Commercial Tugboat and Pleasure Vessel. She is an Ex-Navy 100′ Woban class Tug/Fireboat. She is a very rare find as she is mostly original and in excellent condition.. Mazapeta has a twin engine, single screw, diesel-electric power plant with GE electrical. She is powered by twin (GM) Cleveland 6-278′s. Everything in the engine room is redundant and has a back up. The Navy made sure there is two of EVERYTHING; from main engines to fuel transfer pumps. She is very economical to operate; you can choose to run only one main engine and power both prop and auxillary power. Lots of spares included, including a spare main propulsion generator (in storage), heads, liners, injectors, and rings. The great thing about this vessel, is that all parts are still available today! Anything needed for Main Engines in the future can be bought from Hatch and Kirk in Seattle. Detroit parts are readily available from multiple suppliers, and GE parts can be easily serviced nearby or replaced. Kept in fresh water from 1978 to 2008. Currently the main deck fire manifold is under repair. All materials have been procured. The Tug is named as are all US Navy Tugs after an Native American Indian Chief. Mazapeta was the Chief of a Sioux Village on Big Stone Lake, Minn, 1836.
