Of all the wooden vessels

that have sailed

in Nova Scotia waters,

perhaps the best-known

and best-loved is

the schooner.

Regardless of size

or various sail configurations and rigs,

this particular vessel

and its graceful silhouette

are instantly recognizable,

imbedded in the popular imagination

as quintessential symbols

of maritime life and the salt-water trade.
