News & Noteworthy

We are currently working on an exciting project, a submarine playground for the Halifax Waterfront Development Corporation. The submarine will be installed on the Halifax Waterfront to replace the old ship playground on the waterfront. The playground will be ready for use in the early fall of 2011. (see 3d model drawing of the finished project). Check out the submarine in the projects section of this website or on The Waterfront Development Corporation Limited’s website for project updates and new photos.

As we reluctantly enter into fall, we are beginning to look forward to the 2012 Boat Show season. Look for us this year at the Halifax International Boat Show, the Maine Boatbuilders Show in Portland and the Wooden Boat Show in Mystic Seaport.
