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!

Shutter plank

It's been fascinating to watch construction of the spring fitted decks of these twin schooners, and never moreso than when those last pieces, the shutter planks, go in. This series of photos shows the process out in the Dory Shop Boatyard this morning. Enjoy!
