The fishing vessel is a purse seiner configuration and is used primarily for salmon purse seining in Prince William Sound. The hull is constructed of laminated marine-grade plywood with a fiberglass overlay and strengthened with transverse and longitudinal exposed wood scantlings. She has a raked stem, hard chine, V-bottom, full keel and square transom. The decks and cabin are also constructed of marine-grade plywood with a fiberglass overlay.
It was reported to the below marine surveyor that the vessel suffered major fire damage and was completely rebuilt in 1984. Only the hull and machinery were salvaged.
The vessel is divided into five compartments. Below the main deck at the forwardmost space is the foc’s’le containing two stacked berths to port and two to starboard with stowage under and is presently used as a tool room, as crew berthing is above in stateroom in the main cabin. Aft are numerous electrical panels, storage batteries, access ladder from cabin above and passage to the engine room through a non-watertight bulkhead. The engine room contains a single diesel propulsion engine mounted on center attached to a reverse/reduction gear and front-mount power take-off driving three hydraulic pumps for the deck machinery. To port is a welding unit, 50-kw auxiliary generator, various bilge and fish hold pumps and two 350-gal. steel fuel wing tanks. To starboard are hydraulic tank, air compressor, storage batteries, 25 ton Carlyle compressor, and condenser pump. Aft of the engine room is the fiberglassed, insulated fish hold (capacity 90,000 lbs.). The fish hold is plumbed for flooding and circulating refrigerated seawater. Access to the fishhold is through a 5’ X 6’ opening on the main deck fitted to a raised combing and covered with a fiberglassed plywood hatch cover. There are also oval aluminum deck hatches found port and starboard of the hatch cover. Aft of the main fish hold is a “Sunday” hold with access through a watertight access hatch in the aft fish hold bulkhead or through a watertight Baier hatch in the weather deck above. This hold can be used for dry storage and has two 400-gal. aluminum wing tanks for diesel fuel (not currently being used) and a 50-gal. aluminum fresh water tank. Aft of the “Sunday” hold is the lazarette containing the steering gear, one 500-gal. diesel fuel tank centered against the forward bulkhead and one 700-gal. aluminum fresh water tank.
Above the main deck forward is the anchor gear and hydraulic anchor winch, then the main deck house with companionways down both sides leading to the work deck aft of the cabin. A steel mast, main boom and two picking booms are centered at the back of the cabin and secured with an A-frame. Aft the of main boom is the hydraulic deck winch, then the fish hold
The main cabin (deckhouse) is located forward of amidships and contains access to the foc’s’le below via a ladder and access to the bridgedeck above via a ladder. Two stacked exposed berths are located to starboard forward, then a large enclosed head with marine toilet, vanity and shower stall, then a cabinet for storage, and an enclosed exhaust funnel. Starboard of the exhaust funnel is the galley situated along the aft starboard portion of the cabin. It contains an under counter refrigerator, double sink and counter space. A four-burner propane stove with oven is located on the aft cabin bulkhead and to starboard of the cabin entry door from the work deck. To starboard forward are two
stacked exposed berths, then a stateroom with two additional stacked berths, then the U-shaped mess area with seating for six.
Atop the cabin is an enclosed pilot house with helm on centerline forward, engine instruments, throttle/clutch controls, electronics and electrical panels. Aft is a day berth and access to the bridge deck via a ladder. The bridge deck aft of the tophouse is the exhaust stack, several watertight storage boxes and a 12 cu.ft. chest freezer.
The vessel was completely rebuilt in 1984 after fire damage. The hull and machinery were salvaged, but new decks, cabin, bulkheads and bulwarks were installed.
When the current owner purchased in vessel in 2001 he undertook a major refit and modification of the vessel at a cost of over $90,000. It should be pointed out that most of the work was done by the owner, thereby saving thousands of additional dollars.
Since 2001 the following as occurred:
1. A new 50-KW MER generator was installed in April 2011 and the head gasket on the Isuzu auxiliary was replaced in August 2013.
2. A 25-ton electric-driven refrigerated seawater system by Integrated Marine was added.
3. The main fishhold was rebuilt, insulated, fiberglassed and plumbed with 3” PVC piping.
4. The 32 volt D.C. system was replaced with a 12 volt D.C. system, requiring new alternators and starter on the main and replacing all batteries.
5. Most of the vessel’s wiring was replaced and new breaker panels installed.
6. All new hydraulic and fuel lines were installed and most of the hydraulic valves were replaced or rebuilt.
7. One Pullmaster PL-4 boom winch was installed on the port picking boom and a Rotzler hydraulic winch was installed on the main boom.
8. A new air compressor was added.
9. A new depth sound, GPS, computer with navigational software and a VHF were added.
10. Redesigned the head and installed a shower
11. Installed a new electric hot water heater, replaced the condenser pump for the RSW system and replaced all the rigging blocks and lines prior to the 2013 salmon season.
The vessel appears to be both sound and watertight in her hull, decks and cabin. She appears to be in good condition mechanically and well maintained through scheduled maintenance. The engine room has been freshly painted and is well arranged. The foc’s’le that serves as the “tool room” is also freshly painted and well lit. The exterior decks and interior deck house show signs of wear. The cabin interior, primarily the galley, has noticeable cabinetry delamination caused by condensation. Keeping heat in the cabin, especially during the wet, winter months will slow down further damage. The decks are in need of sanding and gelcoat.
