Delivers Versatile 58-Foot Fishing Vessel
Workboats Northwest of Seattle,
Wash., recently completed a 58-foot vessel, Lady Kimberly, that can quickly be converted from longliner to seiner, crabber, and tender for owner Kodiak Island fisherman
Workboats Northwest president
Bruce Reagan said that while several designers worked on the boat, Mr. Peterson, a long-time set net fisherman, should be credited with basic ideas for the versatile boat.
The conveniently laid-out engine room on the Lady Kimberly con- tains the vessel's Caterpillar 3408B, 443-hp engine which drives a 66 x 55-inch propeller through a Twin
Disc 516 reduction gear using a 6:1 ratio to swing the big wheel. The seiner will utilize the Model 516's "trolling gear" in such applications as picking up crab pots rather than using a clutching system.
The main generator is a 75-kw
Isuzu/Lima and the standby, a 35- kw Isuzu/Lima, both from Marine
Engine Repair in Seattle. A dry exhaust system uses Cowles silenc- ers.
The hydraulic system, designed by Ed Bevis of Seattle, is driven
Caterpillar-powered Lady Kimberly, built by
Workboats Northwest, is shown undergoing sea trials in Elliott Bay, with Seattle as a backdrop. The boat was designed to fish 365 days a year—longlining, seining, crab- bing and tending.
Security at sea is using

Parker pressure flow compensated pumps. Among hydraulic deck equipment, H.A. Thompson sup- plied the long line hauler. The crab pot hauler and anchor winch are
Two fish holds—the 1,552-cubic- foot aft and 388-cubic-foot forward tanks—accommodate a refrigerated seawater system. Alaska Marine Re- frigeration designed the heart of this system which is nicely fitted into the engine room: a big 30-hp
Royce compressor, a Freon 512 re- frigerant system, and a 5-hp com- pressor to chill the coils.
An extensive electronics suite was supplied by Northern Marine Elec- tronics. Much of the equipment bears the Furuno trademark—1900 and 1510D radar, color video plot- ter, color sonar, datafax, LC-90 lo- ran, and video sounder. Other equipment includes Si-Tex flasher,
Wagner MK-4 autopilot, SEA VHF-
FM, SEA SSB, ICOM VHF, RDI bridge watch, Raytheon loud hailer, and Cobra CB.
Workboats Northwest used
Hogh-Wagner components in the steering system and Hynautics com- ponents in propulsion controls.
Bruce Reagan, who heads
Workboats Northwest, said the firm continues active construction of workboats and fish boats. Recent deliveries include a fast Bristol Bay gill netter, several versions of Mr.
Reagan's "Forerunner" line of 21- foot and 24-foot boats, and others.
