As this was my prototype, I ran into some issues:

  • One tear-out on the lower horn which was re-glued and one tear out on the upper horn. Both were left without any wood filler
  • I routed too deep in a small section of the neck pocket but made a patch using glue and shavings, this won’t show with the neck installed

Please see the pictures for more details

These would sell for 230$US/300$CAN at various suppliers and you can expect at least 4 weeks before delivery IF they made one like this. This is one is in stock and ready to go!

Why the Bluenose:

Launched in 1921 from Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, the Bluenose was a symbol of Canada and Nova Scotia in the 1920s and 1930s. The schooner was best known for its racing success, staying undefeated for nearly 20 years. Even today, Nova Scotians are known as “Bluenosers”. The ship marked history and as a sailor I feel it is a beautiful symbol. The Bluenose lives today as the Bluenose II, which can be visited in the summer in beautiful Lunenburg, the same place the original Bluenose started nearly 100 years ago.
