Description:
The 102-year-old halibut fishing schooner Tordensjkold spearheads a small fleet of Seattle-based commercial fishing vessels as they steam into their second centuries on the Alaska fishing grounds. Halibut fishing schooner-style is and always has been a family affair. Some of these venerable vessels have been passed from father to son to grandson and nearly everybody in this most historic of commercial fisheries has a blood relationship to the fleet. These old boats aren't hobby vessels or museum pieces; they're hardened work boats that compete head-to-head with modern vessels, as they've been doing since 1911. Climb aboard a halibut schooner in this excerpt from Tordenskjold: Boat of the Century. View the full documentary on Pay Per View for as little as $4.95.
