Nick E Origins: Lukey's Boat (43) RE: Origins: Lukey's Boat 14 Feb 08

I admit to being a HUGE fan of Great Big Sea, which has in turn led a few years ago to this place.

As for using the incorrect boat building terms, that fits with the tongue in cheek nature of the song. The "prettiest boat that you've ever seen" was built like a house. Lukey's grub? 1 split pea in a ten pound tub, and this is on what must have been intended to be a fishing boat in some of the richest grounds in history.

None of this of course addresses the title of the thread "Origins..."
SO let me do that now...I know it is a song from Newfoundland and I'm pretty sure Alan Doyle wrote it.
