Traditional Boat Building of Winterton

Creator(s): Winterton Boat Building Museum

Winterton, Newfoundland and Labrador, has a long boat building history tied to the settlement of the area and its traditional way of life. Our exhibit shows the boats that were built here, their use in the inshore fishery, and the boat building skills that were handed down from one generation to the next for at least 400 years without any written record, plan or instruction.
