Canadian Gillnetters

From the Bering to the Baja

There are a lot of these boats and there were more in the past. I think this page should have a range of boats and I will try to group them by builders such as Barry Farrel or Kishi. If you know any of the builders please add that or send pics of boats by other builders. I would love to get some good shots of those Steveston-built dream boats from the 1960s.
