My Favorite Trawler

I took this picture out my living room window as F/V Defender passed by. I get into trouble all the time because I love the Defender - how it looks but especially how it sounds, all business. You can hear it practically all the way out to Priest Rock as it leaves Dutch Harbor. The problem is that, well, it is not one of our boats. "Our" F/V Destination is similar in appearance but it just doesn't do it for me . . . . sorry Goldfish.

According to this site the Defender used to be an off shore supply vessel that has been reconfigured for factory trawler duty. Whatever the case may be, I always stop what I'm doing and watch her pass by the house, she's a beauty . . . .
