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!

A new batten for Dave

Dave was pretty pleased to tell me that to work with these beautiful long lengths of Alaskan Yellow Cedar, he had to make himself a new batten. The old one (which you can see lying atop the future plank) was too short!
