Slideshow: Boats

 

The boats that we fish on, we built ourselves. Our father was a great builder. He designed boats with the help of his father and his brothers. That’s what got us into building boats and have improved our boat’s designs a lot since then. The improvements are made for comfortable living (since we live on the boats for 2 to 3 months at a time). The boats are built for maximum efficiency and we design our decks to conveniently catch, process and store our fish. The fish holds are insulated and have added fiberglass to hold and retain cold ice and refrigeration so our seafood has the best quality. We have come quite a long ways since our fathers were building boats. We have also refined our fishing process a lot since the 1960s.
