The fishing vessel is of a bowpicker configuration and is used primarily for salmon drift gillnetting. The hull is of molded fiberglass construction and is a planning design with a raked stem, hard chine, semi-V bottom and square transom.
The cabin is located aft and is constructed of molded fiberglass. The cabin is accessed through a hinged watertight aluminum door (22”W X 49”H) centered on the front cabin bulkhead. The cabin consists of a helmsman station with electronic array, stowage in lockers, and galley table to starboard. To port is counter space with stowage under, sink and ice box, and oil-fired cabin heater. A large single berth is located athwartship at the back of the cabin. A molded fiberglass hatch in the cabin overhead fitted to a raised combing can be removed to facilitate the removal of the main propulsion engine. The single propulsion engine is found beneath the berth. A Red Dot cabin heater with one duct is plumbed through the main propulsion engine cooling system. A 120-gal. aluminum fuel tank is compartmented under the cabin sole against the cabin bulkhead.
Forward of the cabin (amidships) is a self-bailing fish hold covered with three 5/8” fiberglassed foam-core hatch covers and set up with three Nomar brailer bags.
Forward of the fish hold is a self-bailing deck containing the gillnet reel with levelwind, Honda gasoline engine coupled to a 7.5 GPM Vickers hydraulic pump to provide power to the gillnet reel, levelwind and 2” Pacer pump, and anchor gear. A 17” X 26” oval Freeman hatch is fitted into the deck forward of the gillnet reel for access below deck.
The bow is fitted with an aluminum roller with two fairleads.
The owner rebuilt the vessel in 2009 at a cost of $30,000. The owner provided most of the labor. The cabin interior was stripped down to the shell and replaced with new cabinetry, carpet, linoleum, trim and head liner. The fish hold and forward deck were removed and replaced with fiberglassed foam-core. The vessel was re-powered in July 2013.
In 2015, the Honda auxiliary engine was replaced and in 2016 new Group 31 12VDC batteries and a Hydrex electric/hydraulic shift pump for the main propulsion engine were installed.
The vessel’s general condition and appearance is very good and she appears to be both sound and watertight in her hull, decks and cabin. It is apparent that the owner takes pride in this vessel.
