Legacy in Wood: The Wahl Family Boat Builders

by Wahl, Ryan

CAD $24.95

This loving portrait of master boatbuilder Ed Wahl shows how his family business played a role in the creation of British Columbia’s fishing industry. In the early 20th-century, B.C. shipwrights hand-built wooden fishing boats using basic tools, guided by intuition, experience, and a deep knowledge of the sea. With the help of his six sons, shipwright Ed Wahl’s enterprise became the most successful on B.C.’s north coast, and one of the best known boat shops on Canada’s western shores.
