75’ Diesel Fishing Dragger

By: Erik A.R. Ronnberg Jr.

Model by Erik A. R. Ronnberg, Jr., 1967

This is a typical example of a moderate size diesel operated eastern-rigged side trawler of the mid 20th century. This classic design was adopted and modified by numerous fishermen given its economic size and need of minimal crew, normally five to seven men. It would have bottomed fished or dragged the Banks off Cape Ann for the most wanted fish stocks such as Cod, Haddock, Halibut, Pollack and flounder. The replica includes its net hauled-in, as well as essential deck gear and fittings most of which are presented in a bright brass finish. Provenance: Roy Wheeler commissioned ER Jr. to reconstruct and build this model to the smaller scale to fit a small niche in his model room.
