OK, not completely on target for our group but where do you think all that Paleo salmon (etc) comes from? From this.

For the past 50 years, author James Cole has designed, built and repaired fishing vessels throughout the Seattle area. Working as a naval architect, he also became a specialist in research-based paintings and drawings of fishing vessels at work. And this spring we are excited to welcome Cole to share his expertise at a discussion and signing of his new book of drawings, illustrations, interviews and descriptions detailing the evolution of fishing vessel design that is unique to the Pacific Northwest, from native fishing canoes all the way to the modern fishing fleets of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.
