WARFISH - 45' Provincial

WARFISH, will be used as a shark research vessel along the East Coast by Joe Romeiro and Lauren Benoit. Preparing the boat for such a unique purpose requires a lot of creative problem solving and custom work.

A custom welded swim platform, pulpit, wetsuit drying racks, and side door in the cockpit have all been installed on the boat. A custom welded tower will be next. We also installed all new hydraulic lines with quick disconnect couplers, a pot hauler, a crane for hauling the shark cage, bow thruster, refrigerator, and a 24v DC powered backup pump. A 16 person life raft has been added to the boat, as well as 8D batteries and a new 80-amp battery charger. We also collaborated with Firex to set the boat up with a complete fire extinguishing system. The prop was sent out to Hale Propeller for re-pitching, and was then coated with Prop Speed to save fuel and keep the prop free of growth.
