Gillnetters at Cassiar Cannery
Gillnetters at Cassiar cannery waiting for the season to start. All painted up, some of these are new boats, one or two built at the cannery and others built by Wahl’s in Prince Rupert. No chimneys so these boats had no heat. This was post Easthope, boats were running Chrysler Crown’s or Ace’s. The flat-transomed boats in the foreground are newer, bigger, and faster than the smaller double-enders behind.
