Cody Ledet knows a thing or two about dependability and durability. For seven years he's been head mechanic for Galliano, Louisiana-based Crosby Tugs. And for all his 16 years at the company, he's relied on rugged Twin Disc marine transmissions to keep his fleet up and running.

Downtime is unacceptable for a workboat and Ledet appreciates Twin Disc's reliability. "We have no complaints about them," he said. "For the horsepower we run, there's nothing out there that will compare."

Founded in 1977, Crosby Tugs has grown to a fleet of over 125 boats and is one of the largest family-owned marine transportation businesses in the industry. Throughout its 37-year history, it has been installing powerful Twin Disc products in all its riverine and coastal vessels. Due to the variety of its vessels, the company draws from Twin Disc's extensive lineup of transmissions. "We have a little bit of all of them," Ledet noted.

Maintenance is simple and straightforward. And Ledet appreciates the easy accessibility to parts, backed by Twin Disc's extensive network of dealers and dedicated company support. Whether it's a repower or a new boat, Ledet said, "We build with Twin Disc. They're a first option for us."

Twin Disc marine transmissions have been installed in countless commercial vessels. With over 100 models, the company offers configurations ranging from 35 to over 4,000 horsepower.
