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!

More media spotlight!

Over the past week, Dawson Moreland's Twin Schooner Project here at The Dory Shop in Lunenburg has been blessed with a great deal of media coverage.

First, there was an interview with Phlis McGregor of CBC Radio's Information Morning last Friday. Then there was the premiere of the documentary Nova Scotia Schooners on CBC Television's Land & Sea on Sunday. And finally, having done radio and tv, that left only print and voila! there we are in the December issue of Canadian Geographic as part of an article on a resurgence in traditional trades.

All this coverage has been great! Tho' it's getting to the point where dear ol' Dave Westergard is going to need to get himself a manager! (I can assure you, having suggested this, that he is NOT interested).

We're particularly delighted with all of the messages from folks who have either been following the project or are just now learning about it. Many thanks to all! (And remember, you can click on the images below to get a better view of the article).
