Fraser River

Gillnetter abandoned

gillnetter-fraser-river April 13th, 1973 — A Gillnetter sits abandoned in the North arm of the Fraser River just west of Deering Island. Before drydocks were common fishermen often ran their boats onto the sand and mud banks at the mouth of the Fraser River so they could caulk and paint the bottoms when the tide went out. Every year there were a few discovered not to be worth the paint so were stripped of anything valuable and left to rot, the bits and pieces washed out to sea in the spring when the river was high.
