Stoga and State Of Art Gillnet Hauler Made By Spencer Carter

Behind Stoga is a high tech gillnet hauler.  It is made by a company in the UK named Spencer Carter.  It is the first of it’s kind that I’ve seen in Gloucester.   Mike Leary, the boat’s owner tells me that there are only 3 moving parts to this gillnet hauler as opposed to 175 on the traditional haulers used by the Gloucester fleet.  There was a guy who worked on the traditional gillnet haulers out of New Bedford but Mike also tells me he closed up shop.

Here is the Spencer Carter Website
