My 40 year vet boat electrician looked at detainee pics and said, "it's all professional, you'll be good." This boat found me, I had no clue I would be taking on the care off such an awesome vessel. We'll be in the Puget Sound for a while, then who knows? It has 3,000 mi range..

What a great boat. Spent several days at Pleasant Harbor this past summer where it was tied up. I was admiring it every time I walked by it when taking the pooch for shore duty. That is a go anywhere boat. Congratulations!

I love the simplicity and reliability of these old systems which I have on my current boat. Welcome to TF and I look forward to hearing your stories from the past and future! I really like and respect what you guys do in the Bering Sea and love hear about it. Without the drama!
You said it well. Thanks! It’s a yacht with a workboat soul. I feel very fortunate and right at home with the work boat equipment. Real hydraulics, massive anchor and winch. Any how, I am itching to get onboard and start tinkering��

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

Here's a few more pics. We are pretty jazzed for sure. We'll spend our first week on it this week. Good thing it has diesel fired hot water system fed through radiators, it's a really cozy boat.

We've several Bill Garden designs in our BC marina. Like you, the owners are the real deal. Congrats on your marine wisdom leading to this purchase.

Given your significant marine history and service on old vessels, what are your thoughts on steel tanks and the secrets to insuring long life? Many on TF report a 30 or so year life and then kaput. Seems strange given the hundreds of older commercial vessels that are in service with steel tanks.
