With Barely Two Nickels to Rub Together tells the story of Ed Freeman and his son Dugie who together formed a company that built custom aluminum fishing boats regarded as some of the best in the industry during the 1970s.
The book recently won the 2021 American Book Fest “Best Book Award” in the category of General History. Praise for With Barely Two Nickels to Rub Together also includes:
“This book is packed with information, a treasure chest of photographs, anecdotes, portraits of key people and boats and shipyards. The part about Barry Fisher and the joint venture is vivid and accurate.” –Anthony Allison, Former CEO, Marine Resources Company International
“In With Barely Two Nickels to Rub Together, author Bo Shindler tells the remarkable story of Ed Freeman and his son Dugie, who in the 1970s in Gold Beach, Oregon, would build the largest aluminum commercial fishing boat constructed in the United States. It is a colorful story that blends all that was and is iconic about life on the Oregon coast — timber, fishing, boats, the call of the Pacific, creativity, persistence, colorful personalities, and hard work. At 350 pages with 280 photographs and illustrations, it is a true coffee table book that will provide many hours of enjoyment.” —Kerry Tymchuk, Executive Director, Oregon Historical Society
