GENERAL VESSEL DESCRIPTION and LAYOUT:
The F/V is a molded hull constructed of fiberglass, hand laid by Freddy’s Marine LLC. of Homer, AK in the spring of 2008 and finished by the present owner. The vessel is twin-engine gas with 8 ½” water jets, the hull has a raked stem with a slight vee, hard chine planning bottom with flat stern. Main cabin / helm is aft, fish hold amidships with self-bailing open work deck forward. Vessel is divided into three compartments with two watertight bulkheads. This is a typical jet bow picker used for salmon gillnetting in Prince William Sound, at the bow first mounted to the bulwarks is a Petrazelka 20” aluminum rubber coated hydraulic power roller with aluminum fairleads and a net washing system, powered by a 2” Pacer hydraulic seawater pump. Next running aft are six 10” cleats three each, port and starboard and one amidships aft. Next aft port is a helm, engine controls, hydraulic controls and wash down control with plastic access hatch. Amidships on the forward work deck is an aluminum watertight 26” oval Freeman Marine flush deck hatch accessing the anchor gear, forward bilge pump and the Pacer hydraulic net/ wash down pump in the bow compartment. The self-bailing work deck has 31” bulwarks, with two scuppers port and starboard aft, mounted centerline is a Petrazelka fiberglass salmon reel with aluminum stand and level wind against the forward fish hold bulkhead. Going aft is the fish hold with a 96”x 50”x 1/8” aluminum hatch cover. The fish hold capacity is 8,000 lbs of unprocessed seafood, insulated with foam w/ fiberglass over coating and gel coat. The fish hold is binned into three compartments fore aft, rigged for brailers and has a 12-volt Rule #1500 with float switch for a fish hold pump in sump w/ grated aluminum cover. The cabin is entered amidships by an AJR Inc. watertight aluminum door that opens outward to the starboard. To the starboard of entry is a settee with small table looking forward, with Red Dot cabin heater recessed into the seat. Next aft is the Force-10 2-burner LP Gas stove/ oven with Formica counter top. Next aft is an enclosed head with electric marine toilet, sink with countertop. There is a 10-gallon diesel tank with Racor R12S fuel/ water separator filter for the Dickinson diesel cabin heater and the air-cooled diesel power pack for the auxiliary hydraulics. To the port of entry is the helm with adjustable bucket seat, hydraulic steering, full engine controls, instruments, gauges, various electronics, bilge pump switches and a compass. Next aft to the port is a Formica counter top with composite galley sink recessed into the counter with drawers and storage underneath. Next aft is a Dickenson Newport diesel cabin heater with fuel supplied from 10-gallon diesel tank with Racor R12S fuel/ water separator filter. Across the back of the cabin is a double bunk with a single bunk above with cushions. Hatches in the cabin sole and under lower bunk access the main engines, jet units, auxiliary power pack for hydraulics, hydraulics, batteries, 12-volt ventilation blower and bilge pump. The fuel tank is located under the cabin sole, forward of the engine compartment with fuel filters accessible in the engine compartment. The vessel cabin has bolted ¼” Lexan front windows and AJR Inc. aluminum door and aluminum-framed side windows, with sliders port and starboard. The cabin lid has a 36” x 54” fiberglass engine access hatch for easy engine removal. There is an aluminum arch pipe mast for lights and antennas mounted to the cabin lid. The stern has hydraulic trim tabs mounted port and starboard under the jet units with a 2 ½” aluminum pipe guard to protect the jet units mounted to the transom.

GENERAL COMMENTS AND CONDITION:
It is the responsibility of the Vessels Owners and Masters to keep the Vessel in compliance with all applicable Federal and State rules and regulations, which apply, to the vessel service and area of operation.
The F/V while dry docked at Whittier, Alaska for a condition and valuation survey for the purpose of obtaining market value for DOI financing and insurance. Freddy’s Marine LLC custom designed this shallow water twin-screw water jet vessel for the Copper River sockeye fishery. The vessel appears sound and well built to accepted standards and practices in a workmanship like manner. The bulkheads, deck and cabin are all laminated foam core construction and appear to be in good condition and maintenance. The cabin interior is clean and appears to be in good condition and maintenance. The owner reports installing a new LPG galley stove and a Espar 12-volt forced air diesel cabin heater June of 2013. The engine compartment machinery and ships fittings appear to be in good condition with signs of ongoing maintenance. Owner reports installing a new Yanmar diesel auxiliary with hydraulic pump for auxiliary deck hydraulics July of 2013. The bottom of the vessel and it's under water fittings appear sound and tight, with good zincs. Vessel appears to be in good condition and is well outfitted for its intended service in the Prince William Sound gillnet fishery. Owner reports doing a re-power fall of 2013; new twin Yanmar 8LV 350 V-8 350 hp. Tier III marine diesel engines and associated ships fittings. Owner reports new engines are EPA Tier III compliant and will be approximately ten gallons an hour more fuel efficient than the current gas engines. Below are estimated values present and perceived market values for before and after the re-power; vessel needs new marine survey when re-power is completed. After this inspection it is the opinion of the attending surveyor that this vessel appears to be in suitable condition for operation in its intended service,
