They have had one for sale at Fort Pierce for almost infinity it seams. It is steel hulled. You can find it on Yachtworld. I am surprised they never offered it on on eBay ...probably because no one would bid over $1K for it since the surface has been neglected for so long. Possibly, it is a one off by a barge builder.

Here is a link from Fred's blog, "The Travel's of Tug 44", with pictures of the annual Waterford Tugboat Roundup. This event has a variety of real and private tugs that all come together for this celebration. Looks like a lot of fun. It may be difficult to say whether a specific boat is a trawler, but it certainly easy to spot a working tug. My favorite is the mini-tug "What a Tripp".

Waterford Tugboat Roundup 2014

The picture of the Waterford Pier shows the exact spot we tied up and stayed the better part of 3 weeks waiting for repairs to the Erie Canal dams caused by heavy flooding. The wooden dock is a floating dock and the water level peaked a foot higher than the cement dock on the left (with the white/green sign), and flooded into the nearby waterfront building.

There used to be a Beckmann Boatshop in Rhode Island, they built a few steam launches.

The Firefly was a one off from them I believe. When launched it actually had a dark green superstructure for some reason but later was painted a more traditional white.

Saw this boat in Catalina gettin' the poop pumped out. It is a 38' Pacific Seacraft "fast trawler" that had a short production run (3 years) and folded. When it debuted, we got an invite from the dealer in Dana Point and went for a look see. The workmanship was excellent. With a modified "V" hull it was powered by CAT 3116s and then CAT 3126s and moved right along. Access to the flybridge was from the top of the aft cabin, no ladder. The athwarthship bunk in the aft cabin was odd but overall we liked it, kinda pricey though, which might have led to it's early demise.

I think there is a 46' Beckman for sale in Ft pierce. It has an 8-71 for power. Needs a lot of attention. Beckman built in steel in the 80's . Trawlers, small steamers and I believe some fish boats.

The ICW southbound migration is definitely picking up. We're having some great cruising weather.

The variety of designs keeps the "backyard" interesting.

I think these folks are lookin' pretty good. The second guy is probably heading to the Georgetown Wooden Boat Show. KJ

The 38T was ill-conceived right from the start. The hull is from a successful 33' sportfisherman that I drew in the late 1980's. But the 38T was too short to be a good aft-cabin high-speed hull. The size of the aft cabin pushed the engines and the tanks too far forward. She came out overweight and was a lot more expensive to build than expected, so PS lost a lot of money on the first bunch. The boat was just too small to look really good from all angles (see the picture) and cost what she did.

I keep my boat at Onekama and have not noticed a GB 32 there. There is another trawler there that could possibly be a GB but thought it was another Taiwanese boat. I never looked at it too closely and can't see enough from the pic in the ad to tell if it is the other trawler at Onekama.
