34' (Registered Length) Commercial Seiner built by Leclerq Marine Construction in Seattle, Wa. in 1977. The hull is of the displacement design with full keel, tunnel for running gear, recessed keel cooler and is constructed of molded high impact fiberglass reinforced polyester resin and woven roving (single skin). The hull and deck thickness vary thru out the hull and are thickest in structural support areas. The deckhouse and deck are integrally molded and joined to the hull at the deck flange. The deck is mechanically bonded and sealed at the deck flange with hard plastic toe rail fastened over the joint and protected with hard plastic rub rails on the hull sides with an aluminum transom cap rail on centerline protecting the stern. There are short bulwarks around the mid ship portion of the decks with freeing ports on port and starboard at base of of bulwarks. This area was examined thru out vessel and found to be tight and intact.
The vessel is of a typical Prince William Sound Seiner configuration with a small foredeck, followed by a combination crews berth/galley/helm station/head which has been converted into a mechanical room. There is a flying bridge over main cabin and a Crows Nest control station atop the main mast. There is a large open aft deck with a spacious fish/cargo hold, bin boards and removable cargo hatch deck covers. Farther aft of the cargo hold is a watertight hatch leading to the lazzerette and steering gear with port and starboard fuel tanks and centerline potable water tank. The vessel is outfitted with a 19" Thompson hydraulic anchor winch on the foredeck and a free standing 6" Sch 80 welded aluminum main mast and 4" sch 80 main boom with hydraulic power block. There is one (1) secondary 2 3/4" sch 80 picking booms with winch. The vessel is powered with a single 6V92 naturally aspirated 300 HP diesel engine with Twin Disc MG 509 Marine Gear.
There is a V-berth forward that sleeps four. The interior is decorated with neutral fabric material and teak joinery. Next aft from the V berth is the combination galley/dinette with a head/shower aft on the starboard side. There are steps up to the aft deck and access on centerline under the steps to the main machinery space. There is a watertight door offset to the starboard from the centerline aft bulkhead leading to the aft work deck.
