SHIP'S SCRAP...

Between September 1990 and  December 1992, about ten ships where reformed on  Vianayard's.

Normaly the forward part is cutted out and replaced by a new one larger. The part cutted out go to scrap towed by a tug boat, generaly to a scrapper in Lisbon - Alhos Vedros, where she was unriged.

At the end of eighty decade, Empresa de Pesca de Viana had 13 ships. Is the highest period of this factory  fishing along her history. In the begining of the ninety decade she started to decline and the ships goes to scrap.

Excepting two ships, Praia de Santa Cruz and Ilha Graciosa, the other vessels of Empresa de Pesca de Viana where transformed in scrap. Most of all unriged in Comercial Dock excluding Leone IV - Ex. Senhora do Mar and Monte de Santa Luzia, that goes to Gijon towed by the tug boat "Facal 14" in 30 April 1994.

The classic trawler  "Senhor dos Mareantes", Vianayard's building nº 1 , that we can see on the foto below, landed on south side of Comercial Dock, waiting for her unlucky end after 44 years at  sea, most of all on the seas of Newfoundland and Groenland catching the cod fish and salting him until received a great transformation between 1977/1980. She was adapted to freeze the fish using modern processes.

 

 

 

Main characteristics of "SENHOR DOS MAREANTES and SENHORA DAS CANDEIAS", sister's ships:

Length over all : 71,92 mts

Breath : 11,05 mts

Gross tonnage : 1266 tons

Power engine : 1100 BHP at 275 RPM

Type of engine : N.V. Verkspoor year 1947

 Building: E.N.V.C. in 1948

After that all the fish catched is processed frozen, it means that the trip is shorter and she made more trips in a year and more money for the owner and for the crew.

The same sort had the coastal fisher boats made in wood was unriged by an European Comunity Agreement. The fisher owners received a compensation to unrig her vessels.

The scrap had no interest because all of them is wood whithout any comercial value, excluding the motor, the winches and few parts in iron.
