I.F. Mariner Work Progresses Quickly
Everyday I visit I.F. Mariner at Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op, there is something new happening. The shipwrights are working quickly to complete the project in time for summer fishing season. This week they skinned the dry hold in preparation for fiberglass. Two large areas of scrap metal being used as ballast, were removed to create more space in what will be the fish hold. Yesterday morning, 2500 pounds of metal was removed with more being retrieved by a hard working crew. The engine room entrance was opened up to allow for the removal of the old generator.
