Ulukhaktok Sailboat

Ulukhaktok (formerly Holman), Diamond Jenness Peninsula, Victoria
As we sailed in, we noticed what seemed to be a schooner on the beach. After walking into Ulukhaktok, we got a better look at it, and saw it was the ketch Nur. Built of steel plate to what looks like a dory hull design, and rigged with what seemed available locally, we were told the owner was a white man who built the boat here. The owner apparently lives on nearby Holman Island during the summer, so we never met him.
