The fishing vessel is of a bowpicker configuration and is used primarily for salmon drift gillnetting. The hull, decks, bulkheads, cabin and tanks are constructed of marine-grade aluminum plate. The hull is a planing design with a curved stem, 8” gull-wing (inverted) chine for added lift, semi-V bottom, square transom, cabin aft and flush decks forward of cabin with six fish holds amidships.
The cabin with access through a watertight Diamond Sea-Glaze hinged aluminum door (22”W X 62”H) centered on the forward cabin bulkhead is well arranged with adequate stowage. To port forward is a helmsman station with electronic array. A refrigerator is located beneath the helmsman seat, then counter space with sink, microwave oven and two-burner propane cooking surface. To starboard forward is a dinette with facing bench seats and stowage cabinets under, then an oil-fired cabin heater, then an enclosed head with Jabsco manual marine toilet. Two stacked berths are locate athwartship at the back of the cabin. A large aluminum hatch is fitted to a raised combing in the cabin overhead for removing the main propulsion engines.
The engine room is located beneath the cabin sole with ccess by removing sections of the cabin floor. A three rung aluminum ladder beneath the forward center hatch provides easy access to the engine room. The engine room is spacious and well thought out. There are two diesel propulsion engines with ZF reduction gears coupled to Hamilton Model 274 water jets, three 4D 12VD batteries enclosed in poly boxes with screw-down lids, dual Racor filters, fuel and hydraulic tanks.
Forward of the cabin is a self-bailing deck extending to the bow. Below decks and forward of the cabin are six fish holds covered with six aluminum deck hatches fitted to raised combings. The fish holds have a total capacity of approximately 12,000 lbs. and can be set up with twelve Nomar brailer bags or “slush” bags.
Forward of the fish holds is the gillnet reel with levelwind and anchor windless centered on the deck. To port forward of the gillnet reel is the second helmsman station and hydraulic controls for the gillnet reel, levelwind, power roller and washdown system. The bow is fitted with a hydraulic “rubberized” power roller with two vertical aluminum fairleads.
Centered forward of the gillnet reel is an oval aluminum Freeman hatch for access below decks. Below decks is found a 55-gal. integral fresh water tank that also serves as a crash bulkhead, a 2” hydraulic-driven Pacer pump for general wash down and net washing, and a 100-gal. welded aluminum auxiliary fuel tank.
The vessel appears to be both sound and watertight in her hull, decks and cabin and is well suited for her intended service as an Area E salmon drift gillnetter. Pride of ownership is apparent and scheduled maintenance is adhered to.
