Herring Boat Transvac Nozzle

This is the nozzle that gets lowered down into the hold to suck the herring out.  Note the round connections.  That is a pretty standard size for these transvacs and interchange for quick connecting and disconecting in the event that more hose is needed or if they need to reconfigure the set up.

Herring Boat Transvac- Giant Fish Vacuum

Here is a herring boat Transvac.  It is used to suck the herring out of the holds of the huge boats.  A vacuum is created between the fish and salt water and they get sucked out of the boat and onto the dock.  Thse transvac units are sometimes mounted on trailers and transported up and down the coast as the herring migrate up and down.  Some are mounted on the boats themselves.  Bottom line is that this fishing industry innovation has saved a ridiculous amount of work when fishermen used to have to bale the fish out using dip nets and winches and a whole lot of back work.

Essex Barn Raising Update 10/23/08

Amazing that there isn’t a single nail to the entire inside frame of this post and beam barn that is going up in Essex.  All put together with wooden dowel pegs and notching.

If you click the picture and select “all sizes” you can see some of the wooden pegs sticking out.
