Isswat was built in 1948 in whiskey cove, on Pennock Island just across the water from Ketchikan AK. She spent most of her life as a hand troller in the waters of South East Alaska. She was brought down to Seattle around 1970. Since then she has fished and worked at a yard tug over the year. Isswat is currently in a 3 year restoration process to get here back to her former glory.
