F/V is a single screw mono hull fishing vessel, with flared bow, transom stern, deckhouse forward and open work deck aft. Four transverse bulkheads subdivide the vessel into five below deck compartments, from forward: forepeak, quarters, machinery space, fish hold, and lazarette/tank. Bulwarks 24” average height enclose the deck, and have pipe rails atop to 45” along the side decks; freeing ports in the bulwarks free the deck of shipped water. The flush aft deck continues as side decks extending along the deck house sides to a slightly raised foredeck, with ground tackle and a coaming hatch to the forepeak quarters. The work deck aft has a low coaming hatch to the lazarette with steering gear and bolted tank top hatch for the unused tank beneath, hauling and steering station forward starboard, deck crane to port, a coaming hatch to the fish hold totaling ~726 cubic feet and plumbed for recirculating sea water, rack storage for shrimp pots, and an enclosure for the self-contained 18 Ton RSW system. Fishold packs 50,000 lbs Salmon. A ladder accesses the cabin top, enclosed by a single course 38” height pipe rail, and with the mast trunk, bolted hatch for engine replacement, and safety equipment. A door to port enters the cabin, with tool space and alley along the port side, enclosed stateroom aft starboard, galley and mess area forward to starboard, and enclosed water closet with shower, basin and marine toilet port forward. A sole hatch leads to the machinery space beneath. Steps forward lead past the electric panels and up to the raised pilothouse, with helm and electronics to port, also a watertight door to the side deck. Starboard is the chart table with good access beneath to the electrical panels and wiring. Also to starboard is a ladder to an overhead emergency exit hatch to the cabin top and a sole hatch and ladder down to the forepeak, with upper and lower berths port and starboard and another athwartships berth aft, and an overhead emergency exit hatch to the foredeck.
Exterior finish is painted steel with wooden wear deck at the work stations, and hull interior is painted steel, in generally good condition. Cabin interior finish is painted wood, wood panel and trim, Formica, vinyl overhead, and linoleum sole, in fair to good condition except some linoleum and sub-base in poor condition. The interior and below deck spaces are adequately ventilated.

A single Wagner hydraulic ram controls a cross link connecting the 2” rudderstocks’ tiller arms. The ram is operated by helm driven pumps at each steering station, then through Vickers/Sperry electro-hydraulic valves and actuators, with an engine driven assist pump. The rudderstocks are through conventional type packing glands. The steering gear appears in good repair.
AUXILIARY GENERATORS: One four cylinder Northern Lights electric start and keel cooled diesel drives a Northern Lights 40kw AC armature, unit model M40C3.24, serial #9442-51368,
with 3 total service hours indicated; the unit is new.
One Triton model CT-6800 self-contained portable single cylinder electric start, air cooled and dry exhaust diesel and 6kw AC armature, serial #006090526, is installed in machinery space and connected to the vessel fuel and electrical systems. Service hours are unknown.
Wiring is of approved marine type thermoplastic coated multi-strand copper, and is adequately chocked and protected. Circuit protection is through AC and DC breaker panels. Pilothouse current is from (2) Group GC2 6-volt wet cell batteries in (1) 12-volt bank, starting current is from (4) Group 8-D 12-volt wet cell batteries in (2) 24-volt banks, and auxiliary start is from (1) Group 27 12-volt. All are through disconnect switches, are maintained by engine driven alternators or a portable Schumacher AC charger.

The mast crosstree holds 4” aluminum pipe outrigger poles, each with 2” rigid forebraces; the poles carry 28” paravane stabilizers on ¼” stainless chain pennants and have 5/8” three-strand Poly-Dac two-part hauls. There is no boom, and no other running or standing rigging. All in apparent good order.
