We’d like to extend, a little belatedly, a big welcome to participants in our spring 2011 dory building class, which got underway Monday.
We’re always wondering how we manage to get such great groups of people – truly! And this gang also includes some pretty fast learners. At this point, they actually have the dory fully planked (more photos to come obviously!) and will be fitting her knees this afternoon. Jay is highly impressed.
Last evening the gang had a special tour of the current rebuild of Nova Scotia’s sailing ambassador, the Schooner Bluenose II. At 143′ on deck, the Bluenose II makes our twin 48′ schooners under construction in the Dory Shop Boatyard look a little small – but like I always say, we are building two at once!
