"The Golden Eagle has had an epic journey even before its maiden voyage."

CBC News "It took Keefe four years to build his pirate ship."

'A 73-year-old pirate from Newfoundland's northeast coast has finally put his ship in the water.

'John Keefe waved from the deck in celebration Thursday night, as the 10-metre long Golden Eagle inched into the ocean in Newville, Notre Dame Bay, in front of a cheering crowd.

'"We made it. We made it. I'm proud of it," said Keefe as he watched his $30,000 masterpiece float on the water.'
