CAP AUGUET, NS — The largest modern fishing boat ever manufactured on Isle Madame hit the water in October.
Father and son duo Adolphe and Shawn Boudreau completed construction on the fishing vessel All Segments, which was purchased by the Everett family of Digby.
The hulking 50-foot by 30-foot boat weighs in at 90 tonnes.
“It’s a stacked wheelhouse design,” Shawn says. “The accommodations are bigger in that style. The bunks and the kitchen are a lot bigger.”
The Boudreau’s started with a Grizzly fibreglass hull from Wedgeport Boats, which was floated from Yarmouth, to the Petit de Grat wharf, then to the Isle Madame Boat Club in Robin’s, from where it was placed in Shawn’s backyard.
