The 330-ton marine lift at Wrangell's Marine Service Center raises its biggest vessel yet, Trident Seafood's tender F/V Entrance Point. Coming in at 349 tons, nearly all of its fuel, water and deck load had to be stripped down in order to get it strapped up and moved on April 22. The boat was up for steering work, and completed its sea trials last week. At 26 feet across, Entrance Point also maxed out the lift's width threshold, and at 108 feet was just short of being the longest lifted so far as well.
