Scottish Skipper Expo 2022 exhibitor, BOPP, specialises in the manufacture and design of net drum winches, gilsons, landing cranes, steering gear and hydraulic units for all types of fishing vessels.
In recent years, they have equipped two Scottish vessels: the Valhalla and the Westra Fjord and soon Stephen West’s new boat under construction at Parkol Marine Engineering.
The Valhalla is a 28-metre steel trawler built by Parkol Marine Engineering for Mark Masson. The boat is equipped by BOPP three split winches, two double split net drums, two single compact net drums, two gilsons winches, a steering gear, a thruster and a Silecred autotrawl system.
The Westra Fjord is a 28-metre steel trawler built by Vesvaerftet. BOPP equipped it with three split winches, two double split net drums, two compacts net drums, a gilson winch, a BOPP landing crane and a Silecred autotrawl system.
David Thepaut of BOPP says: “The Scottish Skipper Expo will provide an excellent opportunity to talk to skippers about their deck machinery needs.”
