The Curve of Time is a North Sea Trawler, a common sight in Europe but a unique and unusual vessel to encounter on  the British Columbia coast.  Her traditional lines draw much admiration and attention.  The vessel was built in Holland in 1959 as a side trawler. She fishedcommercially until 1984 at which time she was purchased by the Greenpeace organization, campaigned in Europe, crossed the Atlantic three times and finally arrived on the west coast of BC via the Panama Canal where she continued her history with Greenpeace.  In the fall of 1997 Moby Dick was purchased by Due West Charters and renamed  the Curve of Time.  The vessel has been in the charter and research trade since purchase and will keep working in that capacity till sold. The 'Curve of Time' is for sale with the company and eco-tour business, including any permits and recreational tenures.
