The Bluenose refit is now complete!

All of that gear seen scattered on the public wharf has gone aboard the Bluenose, and today the Main Top Gallant Mast (1) and the Fore Top Gallant (2), were fixed in place to complete the schooner. The foremast is nearest the bow of the ship. The top gallants are smaller in diameter and not as long as the two lower masts. and are bound to the latter lengthening the overall height of each. In a case of a schooner, the taller mast is that nearest the stern. The main mast is seen flying the Nova Scotian flag.
