History of Bass Tub
It all started when...
The Bass Tub was constructed in Westport shipyard located in Westport Washington in 1978. She was formerly known as the Ghost Rider.
The Bass Tub was repowered to in order to go green and also had carbon compliant motors installed.
The boat was used as a private yacht in its former days cruising in the inland passages of Alaska.
Erik, Bass Tub's Captain, started deck handing with his father Cliff Anfinson at age 19! He received his 100 ton license and started running the original Bass Tub when his father became ill. After his father's passing, Erik bought the vessel from his mother, Lynn, and has now been running the vessel for 20 years.
Erik always had a wish to own a 54 ft Westport. After 15 years of hard work, he was finally able to purchase one to become the rebirth of the Bass Tub vessel. He purchased what was then known as the "Ghost Rider" from Longview, Washington. and got his wish.
It was very hard to see the previous Bass Tub vessel leave the area, but the crew was able to remember all the great memories that were had on her. She went to Depoe Bay Oregon to a great family who takes great care of her.
After the rebirth of Bass Tub was she used as a private yacht, cruising to Alaska every year. But now, she spends her days at exciting Fisherman's Wharf year-round getting out on the Bay for fishing trips and taking tourists on Bay cruises to see the sights of the San Francisco Bay.
