Mike Schoppert and Kurt Dilworth of Tomco Marine Group
Tomco Marine Group, builders of the American Tugs, delivers a new 49-foot commercial hull. The 49-footer will be based on the Oregon Coast in the Dungeness Crab fishery. She has a beam of 17-feet, allowing a large load of pots and crab.
The large crabber joins the 32-foot Bristol Bay fishing boats and a pair of larger commercial fishing boats built last year at the La Conner facility. Tomco works with La Conner Maritime in the building and fitting out of the hulls. Maritime will commission the hull this summer and we expect to see her trialing this summer.
