Currently we are building a 'gunkholer'. The hull, similar to the larger boats built at the shop, is 24' x 8'. This is a return to an earlier length to beam ratio of 3:1 which allows for an easier driven and more efficient hull. The boat will be powered by a Perkins 50 hp diesel. The boat will be mostly open with a small cabin forward. See more here and in the March 2010 edition of Commercial Fisheries News on newstands now.
Our railway is getting ready to take on new work this spring in a addition to getting some scheduled maintenance.
