32' Bristol Bay Gillnet Boat for Johnny McMahan
The Emory James is a Twin Jet Bristol Bay Gillnetter built for Alaska fisherman Johnny McMahan. 

For his gillnet boat, Johnny wanted to trade cabin room for more deck space.  We worked together and came up with a smaller modified cabin on the sternpicker that suited his style of Bristol Bay fishing.  

Reports from Bristol Bay have it that the performance of the first Mavrik aluminum gillnet boat caught a lot of attention and admirers.
