Big Pond Boat Shop in Martins River

Hello world....
Big Pond Boat Shop is entering the blogging world to tell you what the shop is doing these days. We are in the process of updating our web site but it takes a while to decide what to put on there!
Keith and Pat arrived back in Nova Scotia  in the summer of 2010 after an eighteen month sabbatical from Boat Building. The Big Pond Boat Shop premises and our house in Cape Breton were sold, and we have bought a new house in Martins River, Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. We spent the last 6 months constructing a new boat shop behind the house.

This month we started the first boat building project. Pictured is the beginnings of a plug for an eight foot rowing dinghy. This pretty dinghy will be production in summer of 2011.

Other planned projects are a Joel White designed 15 foot Marsh Cat(a gaff rigged sailing boat) and a Graham Byrne designed 20 foot Ocracoke (a centre console planning power boat).

Thinking of all the people displaced in Japan and wishing for improvements in their conditions

All for now
