This is a nice way of fishing salmon. Boats aren't to big, and they seem to get some good fishes too. The launching of the boats and taking them out of the water is quite spectalular. I think it's a good idea to use a boat made of aluminium for this type of fishing, eh? But i think the boat in the clip is made of plywood. With epoxy it's a very strong and light method to build a boat like this.Boats with flat bottoms seem to be far more useful as it looks like. Maybe getting time to settle for an even smaller boat for me? This clip is from the west coast in USA. I found it on vetouistelu.com
ps. Notice the santafigure in some parts of the clip.
Greetings, I'm glad you like my video!ReplyDelete
You are correct, this boat is a traditional Pacific City (Oregon USA) dory made of wood covered with fiberglass.
When landing it's important for the boats to slide on the wet sand up onto the beach far enough to be clear of the breaking surf. Flat bottom boats of wood and fiberglass work well for this but NOT aluminum. Aluminum boats stick when they hit the beach and do not slide! Ouch!
Thanks for sharing the video. I'll post more of your clips here if you don't mind. Very interesting, i must say. Merry christmas :-)ReplyDelete
