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!

Schooner documentary airs tomorrow

One last reminder about the premiere of the new documentary Nova Scotia Schooners on CBC-TV's Land and Sea tomorrow at noon (check local listings). There's an interview with Capt. Tom in today's Chronicle Herald in which he talks about the show. It also features a great photo shot out in The Dory Shop boatyard. Check it out at’s-cut-schooners
