Along the Maine coast, the distinctive lobster boat is ubiquitous, and fisherman devote nearly as much time and effort naming their boats as their children. In this charming little volume, Victor Cole has reached out to hundreds of lobstermen and collected the stories behind the names of their boats. Some of the names are of children, or of loved ones who've passed on; some are religious or inspirational, and some are downright funny. But the stories behind them are all interesting and reveal something about Maine's fishing culture.
