Use: “It’s a Gulf shrimp boat built in Texas by Rock Island Ship Company. I’ve been remodeling every inch over the past six years to be a liveaboard and dive boat, mostly for on the west side of Vancouver Island. It’s the same boat as the Anita-D (1974, 78 foot), only the smaller and older sister built in 1971. They both came through the Panama Canal together and to Newport together. Then they moved up here together with different owners.”
