Welcome to Original Shipster!

This blog is the result of a lifelong fascination with all things maritime and the desire to share my research with you. I have written about ships and shipwrecks from all Canadian provinces and territories, combining the human stories with the history of the vessels themselves. For more modern information seekers, you’ll find articles on ships that visit the harbour in St. John’s, Newfoundland (where I live), and interviews with individuals who took to the seas for their careers.

If you’re a maritime professional and want to share your story, please contact me. Let’s chat!

If you have a shipwreck you want to know more about, let me know. I’m always looking to learn more!
