Arnold's Cove Jack Boat

Last week, I went out with Bruce Whitelaw of the Wooden Boat Museum of Newfoundland and Labrador to the town of Arnold's Cove to look at a boat they are hoping to save. The Winnie and Eric, a jack boat with a long history with the area, has been donated to the Town. Bruce had a preliminary look at the vessel, and we are planning on heading back to Arnold's Cove to do detailed measurements, and some oral history interviews on the history of the boat.

If you know anything about the boat, email me at ich@heritagefoundation.ca
