The vessel was built in Holland in 1959 as a side trawler. She fished commercially 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.
