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!

Bunch 'o pics

Here are some additional pictures from The Dory Shop Boatyard and our twin schooner build. You can see mast partners in place in two of the photos, and also, the mock-up of the aft cabin below. The weather in Lunenburg has been pretty fine lately. Here's hoping it doesn't change much.
By the way, you can click on any of these photos to get a more close-up view.
