The LOIS G., built in 1957, is a 57 gross ton, 72-foot wooden snapper vessel of the type used in the 1960's fishery. These vessels had ample storage space for ice for long periods at sea. It was not uncommon for them to stay 20 days catching up to 30 thousand pounds or more of mixed species of snappers and groupers.
