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!

Longer days

Does a person dare say we've had a pretty good winter so far? Good meaning open, little you-know-what to contend with. Probably best left unsaid, huh? After all, it was only above freezing for a few hours today and we're a pretty superstitious lot hereabouts. What is clear is that the days are getting longer and our gang takes full advantage of that as they continue to caulk and fair the hulls of the twin schooners in the fading light of a late February afternoon in Lunenburg.
