Bluenose II

They may as well rename her the Bluenose III. . .

They can't legally rename her Bluenose III; that name is owned by Joan Roué. The name 'Bluenose IV' is available, though.

And that would be wrong. The schooner Joan was trying to get built was to be called Bluenose IV, she was not able to get the name Bluenose III.


In 2007, Joan Roué, the great-granddaughter of the designer William Roue, started raising funds to build a new Bluenose. She cited the need for a new ambassador for Nova Scotia and Canada, listing the particulars at a Bluenose IV website.[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluenose#cite_note-3) The name Bluenose III is owned by the province of Nova Scotia, and Ms. Roué could not reach an agreement for its use on the new schooner so Ms. Roué and North Atlantic Enterprises are proceeding anyway, however, under the name Bluenose IV. An agreement was reached with Snyder's Shipyard to build the new replica when fundraising was completed. However as of 2009, Joan Roue had not succeeded in raising the required funds.[5] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluenose#cite_note-4)

Looks more like they are building a replica. Did they keep anything of the original?
