From off the bowl this seemed a run-of-the-mill fishtug-into-yacht project.  Gloria.  As a product of Burger in Manitowoc from 1945, I’m gathering its builders and first owners may have seen some submarines around there.

And as of late August 2017, it was for sale, and I did not call the number.

It’s sweet, and surely a yacht, with

dimensions of 42′ x 13.’

.

But the stern superstructure/deck is unlike any fish tug I’ve ever seen.

And this site suggests that is because it was intended as a dive-conversion.

Now if I lived on the Great Lakes….   Maybe it’s time the sixth boro got itself a fish tug?
