Bender Delivers 98-Foot New Bedford Scalloper

Bender Shipbuilding & Repair Co., Inc. of Mobile, Ala., recently delivered the 98-foot scalloper Traveler to Jakob N. Shervo and his sons, John K. and Jarry, of New Bedford, Mass.

Over the years, Bender has delivered several scallopers to New Bedford fishing interests, but this is the first of this type for Jakob J & J. Built entirely of steel, this double chine vessel features a completely enclosed shucking house on her stern for year-round fishing on George's Banks.

In commenting on the new vessel Capt. Jarry Shervo said: "Bender was willing to incorporate many of my ideas on what I felt a working boat should be; ideas that come from experience. Traveler is a quality vessel that was delivered on time."
