Bosun Schoolers launch their boat

The Dory Shop

After more than two weeks and – dare we admit it, Jay? – quite a bit of fun,  students from the Picton Castle Bosun School celebrated the launch of their newly-built skiff last Friday.

Built of select tropical hardwoods, notably Silver Bali planking, this is no lightweight boat – neither in construction, nor heft (it took a full 10 hands to walk her down the beach!). She’s built powerfully strong with lots of naturally-grown frames and big stern knees too. And thanks to the unique boat lumber, plus fastenings of copper and stainless steel, she’s going to last a long time!

Check out some video of the launch, shot by local reporter Robert Hirtle at http://southshorenow.ca/newsnowclips/play.php?vid=1576 and how’s about the smiles in these photos, eh?

Our congratulations to Aase, Gabe, Agnes, Samantha, Katelinn, Eva and Heather!
