GENERAL VESSEL DESCRIPTION and LAYOUT:
The F/V is a molded hull constructed of fiberglass, twin-engine gas w/ 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 starboard aft, fish hold amidships with helm starboard and 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 custom 24” aluminum hydraulic driven power roller with aluminum fairleads and a net washing system, powered by a 2” Pacer hydraulic seawater pump mounted in the forward bow compartment port side. Next running aft are six 10” cleats three each, port and starboard and one amidships aft. Next aft starboard is a helm, engine controls, hydraulic controls and wash down control with plastic access hatch. The self-bailing work deck has 30” bulwarks, with two scuppers port and starboard aft and a aluminum water tight Freeman Marine hatch for access to the bow compartment. Centerline is a Kinematics 60”x 24” aluminum salmon reel powered by a Kinematics Twister hydraulic motor with aluminum level wind is mounted against the forward fish hold bulkhead. Going aft is the fish hold, insulated with foam w/ fiberglass over coating and gel coat. The fish hold is covered with a single fiberglass hatch cover, binned into three compartments fore aft, rigged for brailers and has a DC 12-volt Rule fish hold pump in sump with cover.
The cabin is entered amidships by an aluminum water tight door that opens outward to the starboard. To the starboard of entry is the helm with adjustable bucket seat, with full engine controls, instruments, gauges, various electronics and a Red Dot engine waste water cabin heater recessed under the helm seat. Next aft is a enclosed head with DC 12-volt electric marine toilet. To the port of entry is a settee with small table with U-shaped seating with storage and a Red Dot engine waste water cabin heater recessed into the cabinet. Next aft is a galley counter top with Force-10 LP gas two burner stove with oven and stainless steel galley sink with cupboard space for storage. Fuel for the galley stove is supplied by an aluminum propane bottle mounted on the aft exterior starboard cabin wall in a aluminum bottle holder. Across the back of the cabin is a double bunk with cushions and a monitor with DVD player mounted to the cabin lid. Hatches under the lower bunk and in the cabin sole access the main engines, jet units, hydraulics, batteries, DC 12-volt bilge exhaust ventilation blowers, bilge pumps and bilge high water alarm. The fuel tank is located under the cabin sole, forward of the engine compartment with fuel filters accessible in the engine compartment. The vessel interior is finished in carpeting, wood cabinets, carpeted sole, w/ Lexan and aluminum-framed sliding windows port and starboard sides. The cabin lid has a 48” x 32” engine access hatch for easy engine removal. There is aluminum 1 ½” aluminum pipe freestanding mast for lights only, w/ antennas mounted to the cabin lid. The stern has DC 12-volt trim tabs mounted port and starboard under the jet units. There is a 2” aluminum pipe guard to protect the jet units mounted to the transom.
