Local Vessel Horizon Pearl Harbor Oil Supply Ship
By Bob Young
December 09, 2015
Vessel Horizon, moored in Ward Cove, is ex-navy vessel YO-43. Constructed and operating as a small oil supply vessel in Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7. Probably one of the very last surviving Navy ships from that day in Pearl Harbor.
Used to be a catch and processing vessel here in Alaska, took a “buy out” and cannot be used as a fishing vessel anymore. Currently on contract with Trident during summers as a disposal-at-sea vessel to take waste/fish bone from our oil barge at the Ketchikan cannery out to sea for disposal.
