  • All fields: Stewart Sturge was born in Salvage, Bonavista Bay in 1942. His father Fred and grandfather Peter were both fishermen that worked in the Labrador fishery during the summer and hunting seals in the winter, and like most fishermen they also built their own boats. Stewart learned how to build boats as a young boy, going from stage to stage and looking on while older men built boats. He built his first punt at the age of seventeen. A carpenter by trade, Stewart builds boats for personal recreation and for sale locally, but primarily he continues to build as a past-time. He has built punts and rodneys, trap boats, speed boats and a cabin boat.
