Re: New Boat Built Where World's Largest Sailboat Was Built.

Interesting, thanks for posting! Gotta give them credit; it's not the best time of year to be cruising NS. Even way down here in Maine all but the bigger commercial boats are put away for the winter!

The picture reminded me that folks from South of the Bay of Fundy may not be familiar with "real" tides:


I especially love the caption:
"The crew of the Katie Belle hope to leave Parrsboro at high tide on Saturday. (Carolyn Ray/CBC)"

I'm thinking to myself, they don't really have much choice, do they?

Interesting article. I like the quote about the work is never totally done on a yacht. You just are not working on the yacht on dry land any longer. Very true.

I live on Burntcoat Head, where the highest tide was ever recorded. It really is something to behold.
