Looking for my Grandpa's Trawler...
I know this is a long shot and please move this to the correct section if I am posting this in the wrong place.
Long story short... my Grandpa built a trawler back in the mid-seventies with Hill Marine (Kenny Hill) in their Seal Beach yard. He lived in the Huntington Harbor, CA and kept it at his back dock for many many years with many memories of us grandkids all growing up around it. When his health turned south, we were forced to sell it (1990's?). I am just looking to see if it is still out there, would love to get some current pictures and show my kids what Great-Grandpa built.
1975 (I think) Hill Marine Trawler
43' length (+/-)
USCG ID# 566601
Original Name "Lady Helen", port: Huntington Harbor, CA
Last known name "ELENA MARIE", port: Marina del Rey, CA (2006?)
The only picture I have of it is a painting they had hung in their house. It had bunks in the front, master suite in the back, no galley that I can remember, wooden hull, and was powered by a single engine. One small feature that stands out in my mind is the round porthole on the port side of the bow (possible matching one on the stern, I cant remember).
Thanks for your time!
