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!

'Primed' for boat show

One of the twin schooners is now caulked and the gang has begun priming her bottom. Hoorah!
Meanwhile, we're primed to be joining Stevens Boatworks and Beta Canada in their booth at this weekend's Halifax International Boat Show to talk about the twin schooners and why we chose a Beta Marine diesel for our schooners. We'll be telling you more about our reasons for choosing a Beta/Kubota in coming posts (the engine should be arriving very soon!). And do come out to Exhibition Park for the show this weekend if you are in the area!
