The AMERICAN No.1 lead the US INTREPID out of Iliuliuk Bay (about a half hour apart) to start trip 1 of the 2015 Season, a day ahead of the season opener.
During our Dutch Harbor Shipyard, the vessels underwent our typical repairs and maintenance with vendors from NC Machinery, Marel, PPC, Western Fire, Alpha, Rapp Hydema, Johnson Controls, etc. working together with our crew to - get - it - done. This involved two shifts per day, 24 hours/day every day, except Christmas day. We'd like to thank our dedicated crew that stayed aboard over the holidays to make sure we were ready to go. As always, our mantra - SAFETY 1st, Second, ALWAYS (closely followed by high production of quality fish products).
Also, I'd like to thank the regulatory people who we couldn't do this without:
- United States Coast Guard MSD Dutch Harbor & ACSA Seattle
- American Bureau of Shipping - ABS (annual survey)
- National Marine Fisheries Service - Observers, Scales, Bins, Cameras
