Boatbuilding on Tancook

This picture is the Original Mason Boatyard located in Southeast Cove. Regretfully it is no longer standing due to demolition a few years ago. Out of this shop came the famous Tancook Schooners noted as being the best craft produced in the Maritimes during the first half of the twentieth century. In 1981 Howard and Sam Rodenhiser built their fishing vessel at the boatyard and launched it in 1982. That was the last boat built here.

One of the many Tancook-built boats that will eventually make this page.
