Former fishing vessel worker seeks information

Posted: January 8, 2013 - 4:22pm  |  Updated: January 9, 2013 - 9:35am

I was working on a fishing vessel in the early 90s called the F/V Barbarosa. This vessel was tendering salmon at the time. I am looking for anyone in the Kenai area that might remember this boat going dry in the Kenai River in the early 90s. I am writing a book about my fishing adventures in Alaska. We were heading up the river to a cannery and did not get tied off to a mooring buoy and when the tide went out in the morning, so did this 98-foot tender — what a scene! if anyone has a newspaper article or photo, that would be huge. Email planetcostarica@yahoo.com.

would like to help

The only way I could help you is to check our library of old newspapers, however its going through a major renovation and I have no clue how long before the doors are open. I can remember it being on our news but, that doesnt help. Will see what I can do for.

F/V Barbarosa

Thanks for the effort Northernlights ...I just did a quick check in the book I am writing for time tables on this event and my best estimate was june or july of 1987......it was a scene...The Barbarossa eventually sank and was investigated as a potential murder for suspicious circumstances....another story in itself....but any News paper articles or photos would be great for the book ....Thank you R.Abbott

Try the morgue at Pacific Fisherman. I am positive they will have what you are looking for. Send me a signed copy!
