FV Saint Peter
CBSFA built its second Fred Wahl Marine Construction 58 foot combination vessel in 2011. Although nearly identical to the F/V Saint Paul, the F/V Saint Peter received some safety and efficiency modifications. It has the newer Tier II electronically controlled Cummins QSK-19 main engine which has more horsepower and is more fuel-efficient. It utilizes John Deere generators, which are also Tier II and better for the environment and reducing fuel consumption. The Saint Peter received a 20” bow thruster to increase safety when parking in high wind conditions during the winter cod season as well as a state of the art WAASP system. The WAASP incorporates bathometric mapping technology that allows us to map the seabed in fine detail and will be helpful for catching halibut, sablefish and Pacific cod. In addition, the Saint Peter received an eighth bunk to accommodate an observer when required by the National Marine Fisheries Service starting in 2013.
FV Saint Paul
The FV Saint Paul is the most recent vessel investment for CBSFA/SPFC. Before this investment, CBSFA had leased numerous pounds of CDQ halibut and a significant number of locally held IFQ had remained unharvested due to a lack of catching power. This new vessel has made up for that lack of catching power and ensures all pounds available locally can be caught. This vessel also provides fisheries training and local employment.
