I thought for a moment it was the Carrie Pitman, having shed her ground tackle and adrift again...

The US Coast Guard turned bacK??????

There must be more to that. Maybe a helicopter was grounded by the weather but never a ship, never.

Found a picture fits description of the Arik. Norsky name. Looks like a sport charter to me. 65', Ketchikan. must be it?

A map...best I could find indicating Zarembo Is. Wrangell shows, but Ketchikan South and a bit East does not but can be imagined in the inset, lower right corner of image, if one knows about where to place it.

It's difficult for me to think of '38 and "trawler" at the same time, though there are a few small draggers. I don't know if bottom trawling (dragging) is allowed or not, in the inland waters of AK. Awfully rocky in those parts, too.

Perhaps "tub trawler", which means longliner with the separate segments put into tubs, line coiled (or better, flaked down flat) in the center, hooks set around the rim, then set out turning the tub if needed to have the hooks clear without tangling. Difficult to describe, I guess. Never used that method myself. Lots of other commercial fishing, though, including many years of actual "trawling" with nets of various type, some clip-on long-lining like was seen in the movie Perfect Storm (but not for swordfish, I netted those things years ago, under California gill net permit).

The crew of the Arik must be some real hellions if they go where the CG doesn’t.
