    Default A Basque Whaler in Newfoundland

    In a the small town of La Scie (The Saw, named by the Basque Fishermen who settled it because the mountains resembled the teeth of a saw) is a replica of a Basque Whaler. It was one of three built in part by the late father of the lady that owns the B&B I often stay at, Robert Perry. He assisted in building three of these with local boatbuilders in La Scie and two other towns in Newfoundland settled by Basque fishermen. A couple of elderly Basque fishermen from France came over to help them and provide the designs. The frames are sawn Tamarack (Hackmatack, Larch) and the planking is Black Spruce.

    What a nice place to sit and reminisce of boating while drinking the contents of the 40' trailer in the background.
