The Fishing Vessel Animal Fair

The F/V Animal Fair is a 32' x 11' square stern fiberglass salmon troller powered with a Caterpillar 3208 diesel engine. It has a nice deep fish hold with five plumbed and insulated fiberglass slush tanks. Our deck is large and open enough to accommodate two half bonar totes for additional fish storage. We have hydraulic equipment in place for salmon trolling as well as longlining, pot pulling, and anchoring. The cabin is quite large for a boat it's size and the diesel stove keeps it nice and cosy in colder weather. The foc'sle has two bunks and the table in the cabin converts to a third bed when necessary. The Animal Fair can handle surprisingly rough weather and still remain safe and comfortable.

As with all boats it is a continual work in progress. We are very proud of the improvements we have made since we have owned the Animal Fair, which needed a lot of work when we bought it in December of 2003.
