WATER TORTURE is a 1978, 40′ Marine Trader Sedan Trawler. She was in much tougher shape when I purchased her in 1996. She is powered by a single 120hp Ford Lehman diesel. I named her WATER TORTURE way before the Bush Administration started a war in Iraq. Anyone who has owned an old, mid 70′s Taiwanese trawler and has endured the annoying leaks that defy all attempts to discover their source – the ones over the pillow are the most torturous – will understand the name.
