The Couta Boat
The story of the Couta boats which evolved to sail to fish for Barracuda off the rugged Victorian coast.
In recent years they have made a remarkable comeback as pleasure craft through their rugged simplicity, ease of sailing, versatility, and their direct link with our maritime heritage. Much of their story is told by men who actually built and fished in them in the 1930’s. Includes new and archival footage, some dating from 1915, plus dozens of period photos. 110 mins.
