Hvb "Port Saunders"

The Norwegian built whaleboat “Port Saunders”. The boat was built by Akers Mek. i 1904 for Hawkes Bay Whaling Co. (Newfoundland). In the early 1920s, the boat was sold to California Sea Products Co., a company founded by Norwegian emigrant Frederick Kristian Dietrichson (F.K. Dedrick).
It came beyond the 1920s laws prohibiting ships built outside the United States to take part in the fisheries in the United States (after a major case involving the sale of the Norwegian-built catchers “Hawk” and “Port Saunders” from Newfoundland to California Sea Products Co.. i San Francisco).
