All American Marine Building Gillnetters

Wednesday, January 26, 2000
After a slower year, the order book at All American Marie has rebounded. Together with charter and other boats, the firm has expanded their Ferndale, Wash. operations with a separate facility at South Bellingham. Currently under construction for March and April deliveries are four 32-ft. Bristol Bay style bow-pickers. One, for Greg Synner, will have a 12.5-ft. beam while two, for Al Agustus and Pat West will carry 14-ft. beams. The fourth boat, with a 13-ft. beam, will be built for Steve Lewis as a stern picker. All four boats will be powered by a pair of 315 hp Cummins six-cylinder B-series marine diesels with 5.9-liter displacement. The engines will drive the new model 274 Hamilton jets which have the same 10.5-in. impeller as the earlier model but, explains All American's Zak Battle, their modified intake and other aspects will give a 20 percent improvement in overall performance. With at least two of the 630 hp boats being finished in time to be barged to Alaska for this year's herring season, construction is progressing rapidly.
