COMMERCIAL FISHING ENGINES GO “ROUND AND ROUND” IN 1959

A 1959 sales piece for Cat® marine power kicked off with a letter from a very satisfied commercial fishing customer based in Newport, Rhode Island. Stephen J. Fougue’s trawler, the Mary and Jeanette, had been submerged for four days following a hurricane, but the Cat D13000 engine emerged from the water running like a champ after a thorough flushing process.

“When I bought this engine I wanted the best and today I can honestly say that I bought the best. … A truly remarkable engine!”

Here’s a closer look at the letter and several other stories from satisfied Cat marine power customers.
