1927 HANSEN 49' FISHING VESSEL

USCG Documentation No. 226740.  Guy says, "49' long on deck x 13'6" beam x 6'2" draft -- MARGARET J -- built by Hanson Boat Co. in 1927.  Out of the water in Port Townsend.  Needs the GMC 8-71 replaced/rebuilt. Will require approximately 30 frames in the fish hold area.  Good boat with a good history.  Worth the time to restore.  Drum and stern roller have been removed.  Would make a great troller."

The boat is owned by a non-profit that has lost their no-cost storage, so time is of the essence. Guy added, "Boat's been out of the water since I towed it up there 2 years ago.  We voted to begin the dismantling process; however, only the basics will be done in the next month. Most of which will happen during restoration anyway."

Asking: The boat is free to a 'qualified buyer' with considerable large wooden boat experience and/or the means to get the job done.  Serious inquiries only, please.

Contact Guy at [contact info removed.  please see update below].  Port Townsend, WA.


HANSEN BOAT COMPANY: MARGARET J is believed to have been built by the same Hansen family boatbuilding operation that is still turning out steel-hulled commercial fishing and towing vessels today that are capable of meeting the challenges of the Bering Sea.  Seven brothers immigrated from Norway in the late 1800's and started building fishing boats for their own use on Puget Sound.  By 1927 Harold Hansen turned from fishing to building boats in Ballard, WA, for other fishermen. Harold's sons, Don and Dick, joined him in the business, and today the Hansen Boat Company in Everett, WA, is run by two of Harold’s grandsons.


UPDATE 3/21/2018:  MARGARET J has a new owner and is no longer available.

David,

Title of Marg J is transferring. Probably time to remove the posting if you have not already done so. Thank you for the help!
