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!

Baby it's cold inside

It's -32 Celcius with the wind chill today (I think that's like -25 Fahrenhuit for our American friends) so there's no work taking place outside. In fact, even sitting alongside the stove inside 'Plant 2' as we call it here at The Dory Shop, you could see Bub's breathe as he worked. Now that's dedication (and a pretty neat photo!).
