    When I was a young lad growing up in Montreal I carried a little pocket book everywhere I went during grade school about the famous story of the schooner Bluenose. I’ll never forget when I saw Bluenose II for the first time during EXPO 67, It’s a proud memory I cherish. She’s a true Canadian maritime icon that I’m glad is now being preserved for future generations. Thanks for this great post!

    Loved seeing the pictures of both BLUENOSE II and the “legendary” Arthur Dauphinee. I hope that someone has caught his projects on video because his skills and expertise need to be preserved into the future.

    Thanks BIll and Maynard — sounds as if you had a great trip. Ginny Jones

    One is almost without words seeing the pictures and reading the commentary about all the really fantastic and interesting activity on Bluenose II and that it is happening here in the 21st century! Also enjoy seeing and learning about the generational continuity involved going back to the first Bluenose; here’s hoping that the next generations are honing their skills as well.
