From the top:
Capt. Dan Moreland addresses the crowd gathered at The Dory Shop for the December 12th keel laying ceremonies.
Capt. Phil Watson, skipper of the Schooner Bluenose II, drives one of the ceremonial spikes.
Designer/builder David Westergaard tries to hide in the crowd.
One of the mallets and spikes beforehand.
When celebrations continued into the night, one little reveller curled up in our smallest dory for a sleep.
