I don’t believe this boat is a commercial vessel.  I used to tie up beside this boat in Petersburg and it appeared to be a charter whale watching boat.  Perhaps, they do some long lining during the winter.  Whatever the facts are , I hope the vessel is sitting in the harbor in Petersburg this summer
