A Model of a Gillnetter


Princess Naomi
A model of a gillnetter

The model boat is quite an authentic replication of a gillnetter.  I took this photo while at the Maritime Festival in Steveston, in Richmond, BC.  I did a minor edit to the photo, adding the name “Princess Naomi” to the boat as it really reminded me of my Dad’s boat.  It’s about as close as one will get to seeing what my Dad’s boat looked like.  When he dry docked the boat, it was very much like this photo, put up on blocks.  Where it differs is that no one would drop their balances while dry docked, nor would they have their nets on the boat either.  But, the model builder did these things to show the authenticity of his work. Great detailing.
