Ships
The Centennial was built in 1990 as a commercial trawler and seine fishing vessel and was subsequently modified to also participate in the longline and pot fisheries. The original engineering and design work was done by Jensen Maritime of Seattle, WA. The steel hull and aluminum house were computer lofted and plasma cut, and construction and equipment installation was done by Fred Wahl Marine Construction of Reedsport, Oregon. The conversion to a research vessel was done in 2002 at Hansen Boat Company in Everett, Washington. The vessel has a long history of safe and effective participation in a wide range of fisheries in the Gulf of Alaska.
