Chanceville (model)

Owned by Tim Chance. Joe Fossey notes: This model was built for Barrie Model Yacht Club member Tim Chance by fellow B.M.Y.C. member Roger Hauka who is a professional model builder under name of Scale Design in Barrie. After I designed and made the fibreglass molds to produce my original Joe Fossey built "Fossville" model, Roger obtained 2 orders from mutual friends Paul Groves of Snug Harbour ON. for the "Groverville" and from Tim Chance of Lunenburg N.S. for the "Chanceville". Roger Hauka has since made 3 more of these Ville's models for Dalhousie University with a modified Great Lakes style "turtle-deck" house. These models equipped with special high tech Sonar sensing equipment were successfully used on their Atlantic Whale Tracking and Watching science programs.
