Small boats abound on the Northumberland Strait. That is the body of water between Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick. The Blue Heron Power Sail Squadron has good resources and warnings for boaters. If you are planning on coming to Charlottetown by boat, be aware that there will be major construction this year and that slips will be limited until the expansion is complete. See the news article.
In souvenir shops you can find all sorts of salty dogs (colloquial for experienced sailor). Often these are one-of-a-kind rather than mass produced molds. I have also seen shrunken apple figures of sailors in shops on the Charlottetown Waterfront. See a partial listing of shops at Peakes Quay where they claim to have nautical gifts for every taste.
Since PEI is an Island, in the old days, the only way to get material in and out of PEI was by ship. As a matter of fact it was not until 1997 that PEI obtained a road link to the mainland. The Confederation Bridge is an architectural wonder. at 12.9 Kilometres, it is the longest bridge in the word over water that freezes. The picture is from the Environment Canada website where they monitor ice conditions.
There are all kind of nautical souvenirs. You can even find nautical based scrapbooking products at the Island Made Gift Shop.
