This is the story of a dream which is coninp true in nearby Beaufort, a
drean of a different way of life. Sue and Ji^7 Hiller are actually xTorkine
toward an entirely new occupation. Jin. was a steam enpineer at Cherry Point
for ti^enty-siK years, but he always dreared of havinp his ow boat and
fishinp. How that the children are provm, it seened a c^ood tine to try
so he had the hull of his boat built by Gilliken Craft and has done all
the finiehinp hiiiself with the help of lots of friends. He showed us
throuph his boat, ^^at a lot of work and planninr has none into this
boat. Here is a sturdy 58 footer with a 19 foot bear desipned for a North
Sea trawler. It will sleep eirrht. It has a range of 1500 r-siles and can carry
a pay load of 27 ton, and that is a lot of fish. The fish hold is insulated
so well that it will keeD ice for at least a x^eek so that Jin can stay
out 4 to 7 days. There are pleasant livin^ quarters for the family so that
they can live on the boat should they decide to cruise for a sumner. Sue
likes’ to fish, too. She is a native of Beaufort, and Jir- ca^^e here froi?.
the Dountains of western North Carolina when he was twelve. All their
five children like the water, and the farily spent happy vacations fishin'^^'
and canpinp on the beach. Now they plan to turn their hobby into their
way of life. 3y the tine ue po to press, Jin and Sue hope their boat,
the Privateer, will be out for sea bass and red snapper. Yes, they ripht be
willin^' to arrano^e a fishint^ trip for a con^^enial ^roup, but pritnarily they
will do cornnercial fishino.
