I had hoped to catch one of the boats coming in this morning but it came in earlier than expected and I missed it. But the day wasn’t lost! I got some nice shots of the area and then this afternoon went aboard the Karen L and climbed down into the engine room to see what makes her go. Thanks to John Selover, a most skillful mechanic, I got a better understanding for what it takes to keep these engines in tip top condition – safe and reliable. The Karen L is a 60’ limited access permitted scalloper. She was rigged as a l longliner in 1983 when Captain John Larson bought her and in 2001 was refitted as a scalloper with a single dredge. It was also interesting to see the layout of yet another of the big fishing boats.
