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!

Sunshine and schooner frames

A person would have to be a fool to think that spring is really sprung and that Nova Scotia's wintry weather is done for another year.

Still, a week's worth of sunshine does the heart good after months of grey and wet, and it sure makes it more pleasant to be working outside in The Dory Shop Boatyard.
