Our shop is located at Head of  Jeddore on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore. If you visit by boat there are sheltered moorings , a small wharf and a haul-out. Although not a full fledged marina we are able to assist the visiting yacht in most circumstances.- Diesel mechanic, marine electricians and electronics technicians available locally.
