Bluenose II Shifting To Position For Re-Launch

Nova Scotia's sailing ambassador is about to be moved for the first time since its rebuild began two years ago in Lunenburg. According to the Bluenose II official website, workers are preparing to shift the vessel into a position for re-launch. The vessel is expected to be placed into its cradle beginning Thursday morning. It's another final step in the process before the vessel returns to the water. The schooner has undergone an extensive $16-million rebuild along the Lunenburg Waterfront. The province is expected to announce a re-launch date in the near future.
