I am currently in Lunenburg high & dry on stands in the L.I.F.E. shipyard where the Bluenose 2 is being rebuilt ..... it is a rebuild
( from the keel
up ) & not just a "refit" .... story is that the Bluenose 2 was built in 1963, "on the cheap" as an advertising / publicity stunt ... when it was decided to haul out
( I watched the haulout in 2010 ) so much rot
was discovered that the "refit" turned into a rebuild
.... the end result will be a totally NEW Bluenose 2 with none of the original timber remaining .... IMHO it is wonderful that the skill & craft are still here in Lunenburg & they are able to build such an amazing ship to the exact 1920s Bluenose specification ...
