At high tide Tuesday afternoon the Norseman, a 95-foot scallop boat, quietly slipped into an inlet on the Anclote River. After about two more months of fitting out, the 250-ton boat, built for Eastern Fisheries, will be bound for New Bedford, Mass. The vessel was built in the course of a year at Duckworth Steel Boats in Tarpon Springs.
