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!

Caulking the decks

Another sunny spring day and the gang is taking full advantage of it as they continue caulking the decks of these twin schooners. Next door there's much hubbub as film crews begin shooting the second season of the television series Haven, but our gang are pretty oblivious to all that 'Hollywood' stuff. Let's just hope they don't come over asking us not to make noise.
