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.
