Is anything more popular with Kiwi blokes than messing about in boats? Chances are that if Joe Kiwi is not already building a boat, he's thinking about doing so, but in the meantime he's out fishing on someone else's?
Blokes and Boats celebrates the love and affinity for the sea that many Kiwi guys have. It tells the stories of more than fifty blokes of all ages, from all parts of the country, and the boats that have given them so much pleasure.
All sorts of boats, all sorts of blokes.
Bill McCarthy scoured the country to find the blokes who feature in this book, and a fascinating collection they turned out to be. Some of their boats are even more unusual. Charter boats, houseboats, vintage craft, racing yachts, steamboats: all - and more besides - are featured here. Brian Moorhead's stunning photographs complement the text, making this the ideal book for every Kiwi bloke who loves the sea.
