Ocean Wrestler

IMO : 7119044

Build : 1972 by Beliard-Murdoch SA, Oostende in Belgium, nr C.120 as Wrestler

I know his boat is older than I am, has probably weathered and ridden out more storms than I wish to encounter, has felt more water gliding underneath her keel than every modern build ship will and has made good waaaay more miles sailing around this blue/green ball we call earth than I hope to do…..tremendous respect for this old lady and old fashioned boat building but (and I know a certain old captain of mine deffo will not appreciate this): from the side her hull just looks like a banana!!!

    I did some research on this one, and i can confirm that the Ocean Wrestler has been used in a X-files episode. Can’t really say which one though.

    In third season episode 9, “Nisei”. I found this page by googling the ships name.
