Seen on the River: MV Ken “Wewa” Strickland
Posted on Sep 27th, 2016

 
Seen pushing a barge upriver to the Phillips 66 terminal is the MV Ken ‘Wewa” Strickland. She/he measures 66 by 30 feet and was built by A&B Industries of Morgan City Inc. The MV Strickland is outfitted with twin Cummins QSK19-M engines from Cummins Mid-South that combine for 1,350 hp. The four-blade stainless-steel Kahlenberg propellers have a 66-inch diameter and a 54-inch pitch.
 
Here’s where it gets confusing…the boat is named after the captain of the MV Jack Haskell, Capt. Jarrott “Wewa” Strickland. The MV Jack Haskell is named after Blessey Marine vice president of logistics Jack Haskell. Maybe someone can tell us who’s the captain of the MV Ken ‘Wewa” Strickland.
 
Here’s a story about Cap’n Strickland but remember, he’s on the MV Jack Haskell.
