Trawler sunk
 
A commercial trawler which frequents our little town went down at one of the commercial docks. One of a dwindling number of wooden boats; she was built in 1978. The little harbor was filled with the smell of diesel and a visible red slick covered several areas, despite a retaining boom placed by the USCG.

Sprung plank, maybe? That's happened to a few of the old wood commercial fishboats in our marina with similar results.

Now, who was that person looking for a good deal on a nice wooden Trawler....?

That is so sad to see.

Was this the boat with the neglected sea strainer?

It will be interesting find out why she sank. A sprung plank? She's pretty new to have fastener issues.

I believe he was referring to a thread that is closed with over 600 postings that was titled twins vs, single or something like that

Greetings,
Yup, that'd be the one. Ya see a twin engine boat is twice as likely to sink as a single...

Look at all that rigging! I thought my boat was complicated.

Sad thing is that a lot of these guys don't have insurance, mom and pop shops. We had a squid boat sink in the outer harbor last year and the guy was nearly wiped out. They got her refloated pretty quickly and she is back in the water but it will take him years to recover. A bad hose in the engine room as I recall.
