A gigantic gulf coast shrimp boat conversion pulled into Powell River a few weeks back. Did all the work himself and is now out there doing it.

Many people in this site will dissuade your dreams.

I wonder if that shrimp boat might have been Rod Wagner's MV Seafish a white hull, white superstructure, about 80' long. He did a shrimper conversion in Chauvin, Louisiana, a very nice job! They left here late November 2015. I snapped the shot below as they were heading down Bayou Petit Cailliou out to the Gulf.
