Traditional Boat Building of Winterton
Winterton Boat Building Museum
Winterton , Newfoundland and Labrador


   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 records,
plans or instructions. You
will be taken through the
steps of building a
traditional Winterton fishing
boat and introduced to some
of the many builders, as well
as to the research student

who studied and recorded the
methods used here.
   The museum would like to
give special thanks to Hilary
Cass and Fred Green for their
tremendous contributions to
our Community Memories
