The vessel is an all welded steel displacement hull commercial fishing vessel build
in 1969. The vessel has the addition of a mechanically fastened marine grade
aluminum alloy top house. The hull is reported to be constructed of .250 welded steel
plate, transverse and longitudinal framing appear to be adequate for this size and class
of vessel. There are four (4) watertight transverse bulkheads of reported .250’ steel
plate with vertical stiffeners. Single watertight bulkhead, common with the engine room
and fo’s’cle. Single watertight bulkhead, common with the aft engine room and main fish
hold. Single watertight bulkhead, common between main fish hold and Sunday hold.
Single watertight bulkhead, common between Sunday hold aft and aft fuel oil tank.
The vessel is of a forward house design with single full width insulated fiberglass
flooded fish hold. The displacement hull form consists of a double chine, single screw
with a raked stem and moderate flare forward. The transom shows a horseshoe style
with nearly plumb sides and steel bulwarks capped with as sighted aft a 2.00” steel
pipe. The working deck is fitted with a soft wood false deck forward and a raised poop
deck that is approx. 12” elevated from the main deck forward. The finished height of the
bulwarks in this aft area measures 34.5’ in height. The poop deck and situated to port is
a watertight Baier flush hatch with the clear measurements of 16” x 24” for access the
The dimensions of the steel poop deck are 15’8” athwartships as a mean chord length
by 184” in length fore and aft. Forward to this is the main deck that has a softwood false
deck with the measurements of 16’ x 16’. Forward on the main deck is the hatch to the fish hold, this non-watertight hatch is 72” x 72” and atop a 16” combing. The main fish hold in full width, insulated and FRP covering. All plumbing sighted in this fish hold constructed of SCH 80 PVC pipe.
Additionally, in the main hold is are two bolted cover plates to access the two (2) intermediate bearings and the compression style stuffing box. Aft of the main hold, is a small Sunday hold that is currently not plumbed for circulation or refrigerated seawater. This Sunday hold is accessed via rectangular Baier® flush hatch inset into the poop deck on centerline.
The main hatch to the main cabin is slightly offset to port and is a hardwood constructed
“Dutch” style door with the clear measurements of 25” in width x 63” in height. Upon entering you will see galley offset to port and the mess area and table with “U” shaped seating offset to starboard. The galley is fitted to port with a Haier® refrigerator / freezer and Oster 0.9 ft³ microwave oven and Diesel stove forward that is currently not in service. Forward of this area is the companion way to the lower pilot house with the ships head on centerline forward and single berth with storage below on the starboard bulkhead.
Forward of this companion way is the full width lower pilot house fitted with all
necessary electronics and communication equipment. Both the lower helm and the
upper helm windows are constructed of Lexan® polycarbonate material.
Offset to port and directly aft of the lower pilothouse is the masters stateroom fitted with
two stacked berths and small hanging locker with drawer’s inboard.
To enter the engine room and fo’s’cle areas you descend down four (4) grip strut tread
stairs via a sliding covered opening offset to port in the pilothouse sole.
In the engine room the propulsion and various ships systems are located. Forward in
this engine room space and after ascending two (2) stairs is the fo’s’cle area fitted with
six (6) dog watertight hatch and watertight bulkhead.
In the fo’s’cle area are two sets of stacked bunks, two to port and two to starboard.
Additionally, in this area and mounted in the starboard overhead is a round 18” Baier®
flush hatch for escape and ventilation.
To enter the aluminum top house, you accent four (4) aluminum ladder rungs and enter
on the port side. Once in the top house there is a second set of engine controls, auto
pilot house and all necessary equipment to operate the vessel. The space has a “day
bunk” athwartships with drawers below. Exit to the upper deck in located starboard side
aft via an aluminum door fitted with full glass for visibility. The clear dimensions of this
door are 25’ in width by 62” in height.
The mast is constructed of steel pipe of 6” diameter with four (4) pipe braces forward to
provide a tripod configuration. This mast is fitted with two (2) high pressure sodium
vapor fishing lights facing forward and various other deck and fishing lights.
