9 John Eagle Ireland's Lighthouses: A Photo Essay
1848890249 / 9781848890244 pbk 
Lighthouses have played an important role on Ireland's extensive and dramatic coastline since the fifth century, lighting the way for many a cargo and passenger ship while ensuring that those who made their living on the sea made it home safely. During a project that lasted over ten years, John Eagle made several daring boat and helicopter trips to capture unique images of these wind-swept, wave-lashed buildings. This book brings together these striking photographs with informative text on their details, locations, and how to find them. Ireland's Lighthouses is sure to delight all those fascinated by these isolated guardians of the coast. "[A] splendid volume." Irish Echo

Pushing the Beach The Story of Marine Link Transportation and the MV Aurora Explorer, Meadows, Al with S C Heal
14 Meadows, Al with S C Heal Pushing the Beach The Story of Marine Link Transportation and the MV Aurora Explorer
Cordillera 2015 1895590442 / 9781895590449 2nd softcover new 
new. colour edition. Story of Marine Link Transportation and the Aurora Explorer makes for a fascinating read. The story of Marine Link Transportation and its founding partners is one of incredible perseverance. Alan Meadows, a troll fisherman and then a young man living in Victoria, established a fledgling business that hit the boom in herring row exports for the Japanese market at just the right time. His account of acting as a buyer and collector for a herring processor is almost hilarious as he carried a fortune in dollar bills on his person that sometimes reached $750,000 in paper money. Soon after this traffic started, he met Tim Campbell, another commercial fisherman from Sidney, B.C., who proved his worth to their joint venture. Meadows, the man of vision and ideas with an insatiable appetite for business development was matched by Campbell, the practical hands-on engineer who could fix anything and found pragmatic solutions to almost everything. Photo above: Cover of Pushing the Beach, a new book by S.C. Heal. Pushing the Beach, a newly published book written by Alan H. Meadows and S.C. Heal (author of 25 marine books and frequent contributor to BC Shipping News), follows the trials and tribulations of Marine Link Transportation through the early start up years of handling herring straight off the fish boat and onto Marine Link I and through the growth of their fleet, including the story behind the Aurora Explorer and her unique conversion to a hybrid working freight barge / passenger vessel where up to 12 people could sample the working coast, a concept totally opposite to the luxury cruise liner slogans. The story of how they found the Aurora Explorer in Northern Alberta and had her delivered to Campbell River via the Mackenzie river system, Tuktoyaktuk, Cape Barrow and down through the Bering Sea and across the Gulf of Alaska is an epic in itself and is fully described along with a map of her journey. In addition to the ever-expanding fleet, Marine Link Transportationís land acquisitions are no less entertaining ó from operating a busy terminal at Campbell River spit to the acquisition of strategic acreage with several hundred feet of waterfront at Menzies Bay from MacMillan Bloedel just before that company was acquired by Weyerhaeuser of Tacoma, U.S. Here, they have developed their own terminal as a secure home base and provide space for others with full facilities for wharfage, warehousing and storage. Repair work is undertaken on site by Campbell River Marine Terminalís associate business, Ripple Rock Repairs. Written in an intimate way, warts and all, the book is not only entertaining and historical, but also expresses a great deal of wisdom and lots of hands on experience of value to both laymen and professional operators. This large-format book (8.5 by 11 inches) contains over 200 pages plus more than 220 photos.
