SCHRUNCHINS

A daily taste of Newfoundlandia


“I hope my time is not run out. I’d never be forgiven nor would you ever forget me if I talked so long that the tide went out and we couldn’t launch the boats.”—Joey Smallwood in a speech at the launch of four new longliners built by the Fogo Island Shipbuilding Producers’ Co-operative.
