Ulukhaktok Dory Ketch
Issuma is a 15m (50') steel staysail schooner with lifting keel, built by META in France to a Damien II design.
She has recently navigated the Northwest Passage from Whitehorse, Canada with a relatively ice free summer. Issuma has just completed the Bearing Strait, north to south. A fascinating story.
While they were in Ulukhaktok, Diamond Jenness Peninsula, Victoria Island, Canada, they came across the steel dory ketch Nur, which naysayers will note is a St Pierre Dory writ large.
Dan Johnson, I thought you in particular would appreciate this shot. Welcome aboard!
Looking forward to hearing more about the construction of your Badger.
