The FV is a Delta Marine 42 that has been stretched to 49’ and is currently configured for seine fishing. It is built of fiberglass with wood structural and reinforcing members and has a raked stem, good sheer, soft chine with rolling chocks, walk around decks, cabin forward, raised wheelhouse and a modified transom stern. On foredeck, forward of the cabin is the steel bow anchor roller. Next aft, is the hydraulic anchor winch. Next aft, is the cabin. Behind the cabin is the main mast and rigging which is supported an aluminum pipe A-frame. The mast is equipped with aluminum structures for mounting radar, antennas and lights. Atop the mast is a cross tree for securing the aluminum stabilizing poles. Next aft is the main fish hold. The fish hold is divided into bins by stanchions and bin boards. The fish hold is tanked and gelcoated white for ease of cleaning and sanitation purposes. Next aft, is the lazarette containing the auxiliary generator, RSW system, hydraulic steering, fuel and water tanks. The lazarette is accessed by a watertight, aluminum deck plate. Below deck forward is the Fo’c’s’le containing V-berths for four. Next aft and up is the main cabin. To starboard is a day berth. Next aft, is the head.
To port is the dinette with fore and aft seating. Next aft, is the galley containing double stainless
steel sinks, a below counter refrigerator, a Dickinson Adriatic diesel fired stove with oven and an
automatic coffee maker. The galley has adequate counter space with drawers and cupboards.
Under the cabin floor are batteries and the hot water heater which is heated by the main engine.
Next aft is the engine compartment which extends into the fish hold and contains the main
engine, Racor fuel filters, fresh water pressure system, main hydraulic pump, automatic bilge
pump and other associated equipment. Atop the cabin is the wheelhouse with engine and steering controls.
