Norseboat Hull

Oct 10, 2016

Small boat specialists NorseBoat Sailing and Rowing Cruisers Ltd. has moved its fibreglass and finish work back to Nova Scotia. The company had a finishing shop and office in Lunenburg until 2013when difficulties with sourcing fibreglass parts forced a move to Maine. Now the hulls will be moulded by South Shore Marine near Chester under the watchful eye of fibreglass specialist Paul Benoit and all finish work will be done by Keith Nelder at Big Pond Boatworks in Martins River. Keith has worked with NorseBoat on a number of projects in the past and is currently completing a boat for spring delivery to New Zealand. The black hulled 17.5 footer will serve as a tender for the magnificent schooner Atlantic

NorseBoat company owner Kevin Jeffrey: “It’s great to have NorseBoat production back in the Maritimes and in such capable hands. Key project collaborators – South Shore Marine, Big Pond Boat Shop and Michelle Stevens (for sails and canvas) – are in close proximity and work well with each other. And besides being good at their craft, they are all delightful to work with.”

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
