The fishing vessel is of a purse seiner configuration set up for salmon purse seining. The hull, cabin, tophouse, and decks are of molded fiberglass construction. The vessel has a raked stem, rounded chine, full keel, square transom with rounded corners, flush decks, main fish hold amidships, “Sunday” hold aft of main hold, and cabin with top house forward. The caps and guards are of ironbark with an aluminum cover over the caps aft of the cabin.
The vessel’s fish holds are insulated and plumbed for flooding with refrigerated seawater. The vessel is equipped with a 15-ton RSW system that is operated electrically from a 29 KWgenerator coupled to a four-cylinder Isuzu diesel engine. The vessel has a capacity ofapproximately 45,000 lbs. of salmon on refrigerated seawater in the two fish holds. The fish holds are insulated with 4” high-density foam with a fiberglass overlay. The forward fish hold iscovered with three 93” X 31” insulated, waterproof diamond plate aluminum hatches fitted to an 8” high raised combing. The “Sunday” hold is accessed through an oval Baywood aluminum hatch fitted into the deck on centerline or through two Freeman oval hatches in the bulkhead separating the two fish holds. Forward of the main fish hold is the deck winch on centerline with two gypsies and two self-pursing line haulers. Purse davits are found on the port and starboard rails in line with the deck winch. The mast and three booms are centered at the back of the cabin.
The cabin is well layed out with adequate stowage in lockers and pull drawers. The foc’s’le contains four V-berths, while the main cabin contains two stacked berths to starboard, then an enclosed head and shower stall. To port forward is the mess area with facing bench seats and seating for six, then a well-arranged galley. Access to the cabin is from the aft deck through a hinged wooden door to starboard of centerline or through a hatch and step rungs from the foc’s’le. The 12-gal. hot water tank and 150-gal. fresh water tank are located beneath the cabin sole.
The engine room is located below deck and aft of the main cabin. Access to the engine room is made available by removing the cabin entry steps or by removing a panel to starboard of the galley range. The engine room contains the main propulsion engine on centerline, auxiliary engine to starboard of the main and aft, RSW compressor and condenser to port, and various pumps, batteries, and hydraulic oil tank. The engine room is well arranged and lit.
An enclosed tophouse is found above the main cabin with access through a hinged aluminum “Dutch” door on the back bulkhead and port of centerline. Aluminum rungs are secured to the back of the main cabin bulkhead for access to the bridge deck. Helmsman stations are found port and starboard with electronics array. A single berth is secured to aft bulkhead with four pull drawers beneath for stowage.
An additional helmsman station with engine controls and VHF radio are found in the crow’s nest atop the mast. Forward of the main cabin is an anchor windless on centerline.
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. Pride of ownership is apparent.
Since the present owner purchased the vessel in October 2010 $220,000 has been spent on the
vessel in upgrades, repairs and converting the vessel to purse seining. Approximately $98,000
of this amount is from an insurance claim found necessary to repair the deck supporting the mast
and exhaust shroud, as well as, some main engine repairs.
