In 2014, Salmon Transporter, IMO 8745254 was sold to US;

Anybody know her current status and possible new name?

rubber dinghy), rescued by Captain Archie Hope of the Porte Dauphine
(later Salmon Transporter) seeks info re: Salmon Transporter.

There don't seem to be any vessels built by Pictou Foundry on the USCG register. 
Still at Seattle 5/2015

David,

So vessel was either scrapped or sold abroad, i.e. outside US?

She has been moored at Fishermen's Terminal on Salmon Bay in Seattle for quite a while now. I can't remember if she was still there during my last visit, but I would be surprised if she wasn't.

Her appearance has not changed since my most recently posted photo of her: http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2078892

Many Canadian fishing vessels have been coming to the US via admeasurement and state licensing, which is exempt from the Jones Act as long as the vessel can be measured at less than 5 Net Tons. For larger vessels, that usually involves extensive modifications below decks to the hold areas in order to exempt various spaces from the tonnage measurement. My assumption is that the owners bought her thinking they could accomplish modifications for proper admeasurement, but found the task either impractical, or too expensive, and never managed to get her registered.

She is currently listed for sale for $350,000 USD.
