I had to include this picture taken while I was still in Lunenberg.

The Bluenose II was built in 1963 as a replica of the very famous Bluenose “fishing” schooner. I hyphenate the “fishing” because, while it was part of the racing rules of the time that a racing vessel had to also be commercially involved in fishing, the Bluenose did just enough fishing to qualify.

One look at this hull shows that hauling tons of cod off the banks was never her true purpose.

The Bluenose II is nearing completion after a $14million rebuild (which saw her reduced to just her frames and included complete re-planking) and will re-launch sometime later this year. The picture doesn’t capture her true dimensions. She is 140’ long.
