Jack Leslie Ship Display

Location: Texada Museum

 Jack Leslie

1884 - 1968

Jack Leslie served his apprenticeship in the British Navy. Arriving on the BC Coast he worked as a faller and later a fisherman before settling in Clam Bay which is nestled within a short distance of Blubber Bay around 1953. Jack handcrafted his models from driftwood found outside his front door. He sold most of his models apart from a few that he gave to local teachers, family and friends. Several of Jack’s models were even shipped to distant parts of the world.

Dave and Brenda Rairie took on the task of cleaning and repairing the ships after we came into their possession from the Sunshine Coast Museum. They also saw the need to protect our valuable collection and volunteered to build a display case to show-off our wonderful collection. With the help of Mike Martisca and Arron Rairie  and over 400 hours of their time and expertise we now very proud to present to you our collection.

Thank you Dave and Brenda
