She was constructed in the early 70's as a patrol/rescue craft for use in the  artic circle environment. She then fell into disuse as the Soviet Union collapsed. With little or no money to maintain or re-supply her, she  was stored away and forgotten. After many years of neglect she no longer had the ability to start or even float. Jerry, who has business contacts in Russia, found out about the craft and was told that he could purchase her for the, "correct", amount. The seller, a Russian General, who needed the hard currency was in charge of setting the price. After tense negotiations a fee was agreed to and the craft was shipped to Jerry where many man hours and dollars were needed to repair and restore the craft to it's pristine state.
