- Owner / Operator :
The Samson is a 50' Delta powered by two 315hp Cummins turbo charged marine diesel engines. The vessel is a very comfortable boat capable of speeds in excess of 22 knots.
2021 brought another change to the Dockside Fleet. James Pederson purchased the Samson. As a long time six-man operator it was a logical career step and a great fit for Dockside.
James is an accomplished fisherman. He has spent his lifetime honing his skills in all the fisheries we have available to us. James worked as a deckhand on a variety of vessels in Newport and here in Depoe Bay. James spent several years as the deckhand for the Samson but took the initiative to get his Masters license and bought his own six-man boat and now has stepped up to his own 50 foot Delta.
Knowledgeable about all our fisheries James is a strong addition to Dockside's fleet. Fast as lightning on deck James can easily keep up with fish on a hot bite. James charters for Bottom Fish and Ling Cod, Halibut, Salmon and Tuna. With customer service and safety always first James keeps things lively and fun too.
