Canadian Longliner Building in Nova Scotia

Friday, January 14, 2000
A.F. Theriault & Son Ltd. of Metahgan River, Nova Scotia has begun construction of a 99.3 x 26.3-ft. steel-hulled longliner for Wesley Henneberry. The boat will be powered by a Cummins KTA38 M1 rated for 1,000 hp at 1,800 rpm driving through a ZF BW361 marine gear with a 6.16:1 ratio. Auxiliary power for the electrical system will be a pair of six cylinder Cummins B-series engines each turning 70 Kw Onan gen sets. The hull, with a 13-ft. molded depth, will included a four-man cabin aft of the engine room. Forward of the engine room an insulated and refrigerated 7,000 cu. ft. hold will stow around 250,000 pounds of iced fish. On the main deck forward will be a bait freezer of about 2000 cu. ft. Aft of this is a full shelter deck including a gear recovery door on the port side forward and areas for sorting and baiting. A companion way will extend down the port side to facilitate shooting gear over the stern. The main deckhouse with the galley and additional accommodation will be set to the aft starboard side with the wheelhouse above. Design work on the new vessel, which is scheduled for delivery in the fall of 2000, was done by Maritime Marine Consultants in St. Johns, New Brunswick.
