Matlock nc By VIVIEN OLSON LILLIWAUP - What is believed to be the first concrete oyster barge in this part of the country was successfully launched last Monday morning at the Hamma Hamma Co. in Eldon. Owner R.B. Robbins obtained specially engineered plans for the project. The barge is 8 feet wide, 28 feet long, and 26 inches high and weighs approximately 4,500 lb. It draws about six inches of water, and is already in use at the oyster company. Actual construction, which has aroused much local interest, took about six weeks. The framework consists of five layers of laminated wire mesh, plastered, or grouted from each side with a cement, sand and clay mixture.- According to builder, Ed Olson, the strength of the barge is far superior t9 any similar craft of other material, and, in addition, this type of structure has continuing strengthening during use. Despite the fact that cement is thought of as sinkable, it is becoming more and more widely used in the construction of everything from a small boat to a luxury yacht. One big factor in its popularity is cost of material which allows a "do it yourself boat builder" to construct a craft in his back yard in his spare time at a fraction of the cost of a comparable size boat of any other Pioneer By ANN WHEELER arge In material.
