Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungCenturies before steel, fibreglass, aluminium and automation are applied to shipbuilding, early 20th century British Columbian shipwrights hand built fish boats out of wood. Presenting the story of one of those shipwrights, Ed Wahl, this book looks into a family business that enabled fishing industry to be a mainstay of British Columbia's economy.
PressestimmenWahl effectively documents the history of his family and its involvement with the fishing boat industry. The technical descriptions of boat building, especially the epilogue, which documents in text and photographs the construction of the last Wahl craft, are informative for the non-specialist and the author has performed a valuable service in collecting the reminiscences of family members as well as of the Wahls employees and customers.
