In Deep — The Story of Global Diving & Salvage

Still in many ways the journey has just begun, and Global's history is being written every day. Onward, Global, onward!" (Tim Beaver, Global Diving & Salvage)

Drawing on Our History–Fishing Vessels of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska
"Jim Cole's lifelong fascination with, and unbounded enthusiasm for, the boats, shipyards, fishing methods, and the people involved in the fishing industries in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska shine through on every page of this book. His painstaking historical research, clear understandable writing and a profusion of accurate line drawings and pen-and-ink sketches combine to educate and draw the reader into the time and place of the subject." - Charles J.

Aleutian Freighter

Author: James Mackovjak
ISBN: 978-1-933245-27-0


Aleutian Freighter–A History of Shipping in the Aleutian Islands
A history of the Aleutian trade, from the sailing vessels that transported salted cod, to the mail boats that, for decades provided the region's only scheduled communication witht the outside world, to the make-do, rough-and-tumble, seafood-driven fleet expansion of the 1980s to the small but capable fleet that today reliably provides essential cargo service to the Aleutian Islands region. It is a history of small ships and the people who owned and operated them, set in a severe and unforgiving environment, and framed by an evolving marine-resource-based economy.
