An Eastern Rigged Dragger Going Past The Road That Leads To The Paint Factory
Just bit more info. on the ZEBU , she was a steel daul sided eastern rigged vessel (could shoot net from port as well starboard side if need be) from Boston that was converted to scalloping later in life. You will note absent any otter trawler doors on either sides and the booms coming off off the main mast that would haul aboard the scallop dredges up the side of the vessel (note large rusted area mid ship) then a hook would bring up the steel rig bag and dump on deck for sortting of scallops,shells, rocks. Also on the side of the piothouse are build outs of schucking houses as well as a buildout at the raised forcastle area.She could have ran as many as 12 men doing shifts of shecking and deck duties.
