Sheltering & securing Shetland’s maritime heritage
We offer a variety of archive research, boatbuilding, heritage interpretation and marketing services. Please contact us to discuss your needs and to find out about our rates, with no hidden charges. The profits from these services we invest in our Shetland community heritage projects, an example of which is Caain da Noosts.
We are experienced researchers, and will work with you on your Shetland themed project. Whether large, small, straightforward or complex, we are able to search the Shetland Museum & Archives and access online services that will assist you in completing your project.
Boat lines plans drawings
Would you like your boat immortalised in a set of lines plans? We take the lines off boats and produce lines plan drawings.
Boat repair and restoration
From replacing a single strake to undertaking a full small boat restoration. We provide a full small boat repair, rebuild, new build, and maintenance service.
We specialise in heritage interpretation, education and marketing. Please contact us to discuss your project.
Moder Dy Community Interest Company
Moder dy, a Shetland dialect phrase meaning mother wave, an underlying swell of the sea, which experienced 19th century small open boat fishermen could use to guide them to land.
We are delighted to be able to offer you engaging, not-for-profit maritime heritage workshops and events. These workshops help us to fund our maritime heritage schools and community outreach programmes!
