What’s Coming

Bluenose Model Contest: Cast Your Anchor and the Bluenose Trust are working on a Bluenose Model Contest to be held in Lunenburg this coming summer. Keep this in mind. Every model will receive recognition. We will have more information in January.

Dating Service: Cast Your Anchor is pleased to offer a free dating service!! What’s that you say? A number of our customers have expressed interest in meeting people in their geographical area that are into the ship model hobby. If you are interested in meeting like-minded people in your area please contact the store and will put you in touch.

Model Registry: Cast Your Anchor is proposing to build a database of ship models that are built by our customers. Some of the information to be included would be the name of the builder, the owner, the year in which it was completed and some of the characteristics of the model. This database would be used to authenticate models. The model would be issued a certificate. The database would be managed by Cast Your Anchor and be archived within a nautical museum. Please indicate if you would like to have your model registered.

See you at the store
