Here are the Sunlight and Starlight Herring Seiner Seine Boats respectively loaded up on the sterns. The Sunlight’s Seine boat is named “Brother Luv“. Kinda strange name for a seine boat.

The hose highlighted with the blue arrows is attached to the pump head. The hose gets lowered into the hold to pump out the herring. What would take a boatload of men to bail out the fish is now done by this highly efficient method of unloading. Video at 8AM

I’ve been bringing you updates on the progress of the Plan B renovation for a couple months now and our good buddy Paul Frontiero sent in this excellent video of the seine boat being loaded onto the stern.
I got some video when dropping off some empty fish totes at Cape Seafoods yesterday. Looks like the Plan B will be making its maiden voyage as a herring seiner soon. Yesterday they were loading the net aboard.

Obviously this guy has way more balls than me. He just nonchalantly placed this somewhat narrow plank from the pier to the roof of the boat and proceeded to walk across carrying a box full of heavy parts about 25 feet up in the air. My knees would be knocking and I’d be crying for momma before I’d walk across, lol.
