Comments: I work on the Patapsco as an electrician/engineer. She is now called the Arctic Storm. We catch pollock up in the Bering Sea. She was refitted twice since the navy sold her. She is now 334' long and has 1 engine. You can still see the Dog Zebra signs and stuff (painted over) and the little metal trays for the CCOL's. It is a cool boat and it rides like a dream.
