Returning to Gig Harbor after a long day fishing the waters of Puget Sound.
The Margaret J is a wooden purse seine fishing boat built in 1927. She is 49 feet long, 13.5 feet at the beam and draws 6.2 feet in the water with a gross tonnage of 28 tons. She is in great shape even after 81 hard years of working the waters of Puget Sound and South East Alaska. Her home port is Friday Harbor, WA but spends much of the fall chum season at Gig Harbor.
