Washburn & Doughty Delivers Combination Scalloper-Dragger
The Washburn & Doughty shipyard recently delivered the 105- foot Bountiful II (shown above) to Capt. Edison Love of Portland, Maine. The combination scalloperdragger is the eighth vessel to be delivered by the Bath, Maine, shipyard in the past 21 years.
The new fishing boat has successfully completed its first two trips, landing 6,000 bushels of scallops in seven days.
The Bountiful II is a deep-draft sea boat designed and built to handle rough North Atlantic seas.
Specifications include an overall length of 105 feet, a beam of 26 feet, and a depth of 14 feet 6 inches. On his first trip out, Captain Love was able to ride out high seas while the rest of the Portland fleet had to return to port.
The new vessel is a design of John Gilbert Associates of Boston.
The owner picked Washburn & Doughty as the shipbuilder because of the firm's growing reputation as a builder of rugged steel fishing boats.
The Bountiful II is powered by a Caterpillar D399 main engine driving a Columbian 72-inch wheel in a fixed Kort nozzle. During both builder's trials and delivery trip, the sleek vessel regularly beat the design speed of 12 knots.
The auxiliary engines include a Caterpillar 3304 generator set and a Caterpillar 3408-TA hydraulic pump engine. With a fuel capacity of 16,000 gallons, Captain Love's new boat will have a two to three-week range at sea.
On deck are two Hathaway # 12-AITHS-24-inch drum winches, with two Hathaway 8-foot wide by 6-foot flange net reels mounted on a West Coast type gallows gantry. With three fixed booms, the Bountiful II easily converts from scalloping to midwater trawling, making its 7,000- cubic-foot, divided fish hold a waiting recipient for any type of catch. Also, the forward fish hold features a Thermo King refrigeration unit for better preservation of the catch on longer trips.
The owner-furnished electronics package includes two Northstar 6000 Loran C with an Epsco plotter.
Two Furuno radar units give the new vessel a 24-mile and 48- mile view range. Also at the captain's control are two Simrad sounding machines, a Robertson autopilot, VHF, and SSB radios.
Captain Love's boat has comfortable semiprivate staterooms for a crew of 14, plus captain. It has a complete, commercially equipped galley to w i t h s t a nd years of use, and is modeled after those found on large oceangoing ships.
