As much as Jay loves dories, it’s nice when he gets a chance to build something a bit different from time to time. For instance, right now he’s working on a 7’ 7” Nutshell Pram that will serve as tender to the lovely little schooner Kitty Cochrane, launched at the Dory Shop in September.
Speaking of schooners, there’s a big event taking place here this Saturday as we lay the keels on two 48’ schooners that will be built in the Dory Shop Boatyard over the next year and some. It’s a really big deal in these parts. You see, while once-upon-a-time the shipyards of Lunenburg were building dozens of schooners a year to supply the fishery, it’s now been decades since schooners were built on this harbour.
Ceremonies are slated to begin at 2 p.m. and everyone is welcome.Dory PlugThe Dory ShopLunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canadainfo@doryshop.com
