From the furthest tip of Nova Scotia comes this sketch of a young boat builder with a philosophical turn of mind and an irrepressible love for his native Bras D’Or Lakes. Where his friends and contemporaries have chosen to pack up for lucrative jobs in far off cities, Scoggie stays on, sailing his clunky little sloop and learning what he can learn from the old timers who give Cape Breton its own eccentric flavor.

Thanks to OCH member Timothy Woodford (who grew up in Baddeck and knew Scoggie) for recommending this video for Flotsam …
