I.F. Mariner

I.F. Mariner is hauled out at Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op for a transformation from a Canadian logging vessel to a tender just in time for summer.  The currently dry hold will now be skinned and glassed for the new fish hold.  Project Lead, Jim Lyons, says the boat was nicely built and is in good condition.  Tim Nolan is the Naval Architect working on the project.  Last friday, they ran stability tests by shifting weight to different locations on the boat and calibrating.  Pete Rust will be managing the plumbing aspect of the project, while Martin Mills handles the mechanical.  A new diesel powered generator will be put in place to run the new refrigeration IMS (Integrated Marine) systems for the new fish hold.
