For the first time in decades, there are schooners 'abuilding on the famed waterfront at Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada. Dawson Moreland & Associates are building not just one, but two 48' wooden schooners in the best of Maritime traditions. These 'twins' will be built simultaneously, frame for frame, plank for plank, alongside the historic Lunenburg Dory Shop at 175 Bluenose Drive. Follow their progress from keel laying to launch!

Installing the transoms

The transoms for these twin schooners arrived earlier this week and boy are they nice. Made by a craftsman friend of Dave's in the States, they are fashioned from laminated Spanish cedar - beautiful!

Plus, the installation of the transom in one of the schooners (schooner 1?) today provides another exciting landmark for this landmark project.
