F/V = Fishing Vessel.
Here at the Ocean Beauty Seafoods dock on the Ship Canal,
in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle,
there are usually a number of fishing boats tied up.
This day was no exception.
We find the F/V Quaker Maid,
a wooden hulled 72 foot boat, with a 19 foot beam,
and able to hold 64 tons of payload (net).
She hails out of Excursion Inlet, Alaska.

I love the colors, the activities, the smell
and the changeability of the boats along the working waterways of Seattle.

I was pleased to sell a couple of images to a nice lady,
whose husband was a halibut fisherman for twenty years.
She wanted to surprise him for Christmas,
with images of the three vessels he had worked on.
That was so satisfying to make someone happy.
