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!

Second deck nearly planked

The gang's been taking advantage of some decent weather (interspersed with crazy little storms) and has made great progress on the deck of the westernmost schooner. In fact, Dave thinks they may be ready for the shutter plank tomorrow afternoon. Stay tuned.
