Pacific Fishermen Shipyard and PFI Marine Electric maintain the experienced shipwrights, machinists, boilermakers and electricians at their ship canal facility. The experienced caulkers on staff in their oakum loft are a diminishing resource in the wooden boat trades. Today the shipyard specializes in repair and consists of three haul out facilities and docks on the freshwater side of the ship canal locks. A 100’ x 200 ton marine railway, 160′ x 600 ton marine railway and the original Rowe 145′ x 600 ton screw lift dock with 140’ covered end track rails provide for extended out of the water repairs on dry land. All three facilities are equipped for hull cleaning, high pressure washing and sandblasting with full environmental containment and on‐site shipyard run‐off rainwater reprocessing.
Extensive heavy steel fabrication, piping, wood joinery and full service machine shop give the vessel owner access to a one‐stop repair and maintenance facility. The shipyard is equipped for the rapid start of off‐site work using a City of Seattle roving pre‐approved fire permit for onboard welding and hot work. Vessel owners will appreciate the port engineer’s offices overlooking the slipways, available for company representatives and owners’ subcontractors, with warehouse space for staging materials and freight forwarding.
PFI Marine Electric maintains a local mobile base, outfitted with all the materials required to effectively perform electrical repairs in the Puget Sound region at local shipyards and dockside facilities. PFI Marine Electric worked closely with the owner of the 1968 MARCO 94’ series king crabber KEVLEEN K to retrofit a NightWatch shipboard alarm system. PFI Marine Electric is the local dealer for NightWatch monitoring systems, www.night‐watch.com, and has several recent installations including the Northern Marine yachts AFTER EIGHT and BELLA BRI and the Pierce County ferry CHRISTINE ANDERSON.
