This large format coffee-table book traces the history of a distinctly Australian fishing boat and culture.
This hardback book, by Michael Innes and Steve Burnham, records the rich but almost forgotton story
of the classic couta boat that fished the stormy waters of Bass Strait off Victoria’s west coast.
More than 200 previously unpublished photos and scores of fishermen’s tales chronicle a voyage of rediscovery. Along the way, the “couta coast” appears, an important addition to Australia’s maritime heritage and historical record.
