The Lewis Reef I was built in 1988 and launched and sea trialed in January of 1989 by the Canadian government to ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) standards and carries an ABS certificate.

She is of extremely heavy duty construction in all respects including all her systems.

Fire retardant resins and coatings were used.

She is a displacement trawler type vessel.

The Lewis Reef is a Canadian Registered vessel.

Every system is double or even triply redundant, and of commercial quality including many items added new in substantial 2001 and 2005 refits.

Previously owned by a professional captain as his personal boat she completed a tour of Alaskan and British Columbian waters, then moved on to Florida via the Panama Canal.

From Florida she has traveled as far north as Prince Edward Island and deep into the Caribbean including the Bahamas.

She is currently berthed in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

Due to her great hull design and controllable pitch propeller, she is a very seaworthy, fuel efficient vessel burning just 6 gallons per hour at 9 knots with a generator running.

This speed can be carried in just about any sea, unlike some vessels which must slow down in sharp or large head seas.

Anti rolling “chocks” (similar to bilge keels, see photo) reduce rolling in beam seas.
