Century-old fishing boat set to be scrapped at Port of Garibaldi

Built in 1915, the Amak likely has a sea of stories to tell. Unfortunately, the ship’s tale is ending in a disheveled state sitting tilted to its side on parking lot concrete. Charles Ells bought the ship in 1938, converting it into a fishing boat before hydraulics were used to pull in nets, according to former owner Alex Ells. It sailed the Oregon Coast from 1938 until 2015 and was sold two years later. It sat in the Port of Garibaldi, aging away, until October 13, 2019. Video, photo’s, >click to read< , and >here< 10:29
