TYPE: Uninspected Motor Vessel, per 46 CFR Subchapter C.
BUILT: 1987, by Western Fabrications at Astoria, OR;
INTENDED SERVICE: Near-shore fisheries, inside the Boundary line
LAST DRYDOCKED: Winter 2019-2020, routine maintenance
CONSTRUCTION: All welded aluminum, reported 1/4” bottom, 3/16” sides and deck and 1/8” cabin plate thickness. Bottom longitudinals are @ 13” spacing, of 2”x2”x1/4” tee, with additional 4”x7” formed angle longs as engine beds in the machinery space; side longitudinal frames are two molded strakes each side plus 1/2”x3” flat bar keelson; transverse web frames are 2”x4”x1/4” angle at 26” or bulkhead; deck framing is 1-1/2”x1-1/2” tee transverse and longitudinal @ various spacing; hull framing is ceiled over in way of the fish holds. A spilt pipe rub rail is fitted full length at the sheer. Framing extrusions are marine grade aluminum.
F/V is a well deck forward and flush deck aft bowpicker class vessel, with open work deck forward and near full width house aft. Vessel design has nearly straight sides, vee entry, and transom stern. Two transverse bulkheads subdivide the vessel into five below deck compartments, from forward: forepeak void, fish holds, and machinery space/lazarette. The fish holds have two longitudinal bulkheads dividing them into three transverse sections. Total volume is approximately 90 cubic feet. The forepeak has the fuel oil tank and a through hull fitting. The machinery space has the oil and water tanks, the engine and drive gear, hydraulic system, batteries and pumps. A swim step is fitted across the transom.
Bulwarks to 32” height enclose the work deck. A gillnet roller, wash bar and fairlead are mounted at the bow. Coaming hatches access the three fish holds, and a flush watertight hatch forward accesses the forepeak. The insulated fish holds are arranged to drain inboard, and the center hold has a sumps and discharge pump. A steering station and hydraulic controls are located forward starboard, and port is the deck pump. Scuppers in the bulwarks clear the deck of shipped water. Narrow side decks along the cabin sides lead to the small aft deck.
A centerline door enters the cabin from forward, with the helm forward to starboard and galley and furnace opposite. The helm has engine and steering controls, electronics array and electric panels, and switch panels. Aft is a full width berth with access to the machinery space beneath. A flush hatch on center also accesses the forward sections of the machinery space. A removable hatch is fitted to the cabin top for engine removal or replacement.
Exterior finish is aluminum and non-skid, in good condition. Interior finish is vinyl and fabric upholstery, non-skid sole, wood panel and trim, carpeted sides, Marlite type overhead, and aluminum, also in good condition. The interior and below deck spaces are adequately ventilated.
One Volvo-Penta model D4-225A-D four-cylinder diesel engine, serial #4032843, 225 rated horsepower, is electric start, fresh water and heat exchanger cooled, and has sea water cooled exhaust. The engine is direct coupled to a Volvo-Penta model (Duo-Prop) DPH-A 1.96:1 ratio outdrive, serial #3819739, with an articulating transom mounted lower unit. There are 4,414 total service hours indicated. Ducting to the atmosphere provides adequate ventilation to the machinery space and adequate air supply to the engine. Soundproofing material is installed in the machinery space. The machinery was installed new in 2011, and appears well maintained and in good order.
• FRP gillnet drum, with KEM model RD-1 free-spooling hydraulic drive and hydraulic level wind
• Petrzelka 24” hydraulic driven bow roller.
All in good order.
A single hydraulic ram is controlled by helm driven pumps at either steering station and directs the outdrive’s lower unit. There are no external rudders or through hull penetrations for the steering.
The steering gear appears in good repair.
There is no AC circuitry and no auxiliary generator. DC wiring is of approved marine type thermoplastic coated multi-strand copper and is well chocked and protected. Circuit protection is through DC breaker and fuse panels. House and starting current is supplied by (2) Group 8-D 12-volt deep cycle batteries in (2) banks, maintained by an engine driven alternator, properly mounted, and through isolation switches.
The electrical system appears in good order.
