    Hello there. I owned the Taplow from 1978 until about 1984. When Carl Strand owned it the Taplow was rigged for halibut fishing. I served as a deckhand on it from about 1968 to 1972. When Carl retired, he sold it to Vaughn Mark who converted it to a dragger. I bought it in 1978 and fished herring with the Taplow, it dragged in the winter and trolled in the summer. After I sold it the boat was converted to a packer. The salmon licence was sold to another company. Packing salmon, it sank somewhere in the Broughtons, was resurrected and continued to pack out of Nanaimo. Just recently I learned again it sank in Washington state. I kept the name Taplow for the name of my company. It always brought me good luck. Mike Florian
