Design 510 - 82' Dragger

This trawler of moderate size was constructed of welded steel with an insulated fish hold. Power was provided by twin 6-71 General Motors marine diesels producing 165 hp each. A large trawl winch was powered by a hydraulic power take-off from the main engines.

The design was developed using the results of extensive model tests conducted at the Stevens Institute experimental towing tank.

  1. When was she built, and where was ( is ? ) she berthed ?

  2. We have no real record of who built this vessel or even her name. Looking at the very extensive plan list I do believe she was in fact built. We have one cryptic note that says Jakobson, which would have been the shipyard in Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York. However when I look at the online records of Jakobson I see no record of this vessel. The year was 1944.
