I was a former Owner of this vessel when she was a seine and trawl fishing vessel between 1972 and 1994. I have some original plans and other memorabilia and could fill in some gaps in the history if desired.

    Mr. Hall, I believe I saw this vessel yesterday… Is it currently half underwater?

Hello mr Hall,
My name is David Charles. I have some of the salvaged wood from the st james that you owned. I’m planning onmaking some pens with hhistorical history. I also live in Alaska and will be using moose antler in this pen. What I’m asking is for history of this ship. Any that you would be kind enough to share. I will be documenting and noterising as histrionics. Further more I consider this a great honor to furtherextend her history as to continue her life. Looking forward to hearing back from you. Thank you in advanced

    I just got a pen in the mail from Survivor Ties in which some of the wooden hull was used to make a pen. I love history.
