F/V Northwestern Pix

Figured I'd post some pix of the Northwestern when they were tendering for the F/V Karen Evich for herring season one year here in our harbor... I think the date was July 19, 2005... Hope you like :) Oh and in order to get some of these shots, I had to climb on the boat!

The F/V Northwestern tendering herring for the F/V Karen Evich in Akutan Harbor. Just out of view is the spotter plane parked and tied to the stern, you can just see the power skiff.

A Front view of the NW, back view of the KE. There is the spotter plane.

A little eye candy (for Kim), the handsome Edgar Hanson..

I had to get this shot! The life ring hanging by the shelter deck

My hubby standing with Edgar and another guy, watching the herring fill the tanks...

Herring coming aboard.
