Stories from the The Dory Shop

Future boatbuilders

Wet weather didn’t dampen the enthusiasm at the Lunenburg Waterfront Seafood Festival  last weekend. There were good crowds for all of the events, from our beloved dory racing (results soon) and scallop shucking to the always moving Seamen’s Memorial Service. And for the second year in a row, The Dory Shop sponsored a children’s boatbuilding workshop.

It was a lot of fun. We had more than 60 kids stop by to piece together, paint and rig up their boats. All of them were quite unique, from pirate barques to more traditional sail boats. Jay cut out all the little hulls and masts while I manned the paint shop and sail loft. Special thanks to Susan Wile for her assistance.
