Capstans for Hoonah, Alaska
Schoellhorn-Albrecht builds 6 capstans for the new Hoonah, Alaska berthing facility. Four 20HP and two 15HP capstans were needed for the new dock locations. A total of six capstans were built for the Hoonah project.
Hoonah's Icy Strait Point tourist attraction will see more visitors once a new cruise ship dock is built. That's according to officials, who expect it to attract more cruise lines to the town 50 miles west of Juneau. Over the years, tens of thousands of tourists have arrived at the point via cruise ship. But those ships have anchored nearby and brought passengers ashore via small boats called tenders.
