Build Your Own Scale Model Canoe

 

This course at the Bear Mountain Boats workshop covers the building process of a 4′ scale model canoe, from selecting material through to finishing details. Not only do students leave the course with all the knowledge and “tricks of the trade” to build a full-size boat, but also get to take their mini canoe to proudly display at home or the cottage.

Instructor Brent Kirkham has extensive experience as a canoe builder and woodworker, from mastering the finer details of decorative inlay to helping build 30′ war canoes.

Run over five consecutive days, all tools, materials, and lunches are supplied.

Fee: $1100.00

Canoe Building Classes with Ted Moores

 

Learn strip-plank/epoxy construction while building an elegant, enduring canoe with Ted Moores. Ted is an innovative boat builder, author, teacher and small craft historian. His books, CanoeCraft and KayakCraft, have led thousands of builders through the process of building their own craft and are considered definitive resources on canoe and kayak construction.

Students will work in small teams building one or two boats during this intensive seven-day course. By week’s end, the boats will be up to the final sanding and varnishing stage, ready for the details that will personalize them for their new owners. The canoes and kayaks constructed during a course are raffled on the last day to interested builders for the cost of the materials.

The pace allows students time to confidently develop new skills and enjoy the comfortable satisfaction of doing good work. Ted will set attainable, yet high standards of craftsmanship that will have you feeling tired but satisfied at the end of each day.

Workshops are kept small to allow for individual attention to specific needs. Subjects covered include sharpening and maintaining hand tools, steam bending, laminating and a variety of basic woodworking/boatbuilding tricks and techniques that will be valuable in many different applications.

JULY 2019 Events at The Cove

Come to The Cove in July

We just finished Canada Day Weekend at The Cove in the village of Westport and surrounding area!

 

The Fredenburgh House.

There is no one sadder than all of us at The Cove to see the demise due to a fire in January and subsequent of the beautiful Fredenburgh House , which we have  lived in and enjoyed for almost 35 years. You would have look at the structure and say it doesn’t really look that damaged by the fire and you would be right. The experts tell us that more fire damage is done by water and smoke than by fire. Thousands of litres of water were pumped into the attic of the house to prevent the fire from spreading last January. The Fire Department did an admirable job under very difficult conditions. This water has lodged in the walls, ceiling and floors for months and, with warmer weather, is now resulting in mold and would have to be removed back to the frame if we were to restore the house. Estimators have put the cost in the millions and that is prohibitive to us financially. We hope you will understand and feel our pain as well. Thanks, and rest assured that, going into the future, we will make the Inn stronger and more appealing than it’s ever been.

Mary, Terry and Seamus Cowan

 

Music and the Party

The weekly summer schedule is now here! There is music every week from Wednesday to Sunday! Some new artists, some returns and some completely out there! We had Manacanabo all lined up from Cuba on Jul.27 but they were denied their travel visas because of complications with immigration in Havana. We were so looking forward to them. We thank Ish Theilheimer for his hard work on trying. Perhaps sometime down the road soon. Check out our Events Calendar for July below OR online http://coveinn.com/index.php/events/

 

Food and Drink

Enjoy the new dishes on our all day menu! We have been enjoying serving exciting new bottles of wine, cans of beer, beers on tap and weekly signature cocktails to serve at The Cove! Very excited to have these new additions to go with your meal or on their own!

Don”t forget, buy 10 lunches, get one free! Ask your server to get your card!

Morgan Davis at the Cove Inn

 

Master of Traditional Country Blues with a humorous angle. Former David Wilcox band member. International Electro-fi Recording Artist, JUNO and Maple Blues Award Winner. Don’t miss this incredible solo one-night stand!

For 45 years Morgan Davis has been on the road travelling across Canada, the United States and Europe. His performances draw from a rich tradition of country blues, as well as his own contemporary songs infused with wit and a large dose of humour.

Originally from Detroit, Davis grew up listening to a prolific mix of rhythm and blues. The music of Jimmy Reed, Ike and Tina Turner, Chuck Berry and Fats Domino was in the air. He later moved to California with his family, and then in 1968 left for Canada.

While living in Rochdale College, Toronto’s mecca for the subculture of the late 1960’s, he immersed himself in the study of Delta Blues, especially the music of Robert Johnson. Toronto’s music scene in the early 1970’s was the perfect place for Davis to cut his teeth as a journeyman, having the opportunity to see and play with many legendary performers. Bukka White, Johnny Shines, Sunnyland Slim, Snooky Pryor, Hubert Sumlin, and John Hammond were encouraging supporters.
