Sea Shadow

“Sea Shadow,” Canada’s first St. Ayles skiff, was launched on June 1st. Twelve friends from the Bay of Quinte region in eastern Ontario started the project at the beginning of January. Most of the group knew their way around a woodworking shop and a few had prior boat building experience. Our hope is to see more boats built by communities in the region, around the province and across Canada. We will be taking the boat to this year’s WoodenBoat Show at Mystic Seaport to compete in North American Championships. A record of the complete build can be seen on our website:
