In 1942 the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) purchased the Morse Estate and adjacent properties to establish a new Naval Training Base (for training the thousands of new recruits being brought into the RCN during World War Two, 1939-1945) now known as Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Cornwallis.

“Abner Morse... came from Dedham, Massachusetts, to
Annapolis (Nova Scotia) in the schooner Charming Molly
May 17, 1760, and settled at Bridgetown...”

Quoted from plaque (above)
This  1760  move  by  Abner  Morse  from  Massachusetts  to
Nova Scotia was in response to the Land Grant Proclamations
issued  by  Charles  Lawrence  in  1757,  1758  and  1759.

World's largest floating dry dock (1919)
Wikipedia

US Navy Floating Dry Docks
World Naval Ships Forums

Two of the items linked above state that “three million feet” of
wood was used in the construction of the Morse Dry Dock
Company's new (1919) floating dry dock.

In this context, "three million feet" means three million board feet,
or "three  million  feet  board  measure"  (as it would  appear in a
legal document such as a contract or an invoice).

one million board feet = 2,360 cubic metres
three million board feet = about 7,100 cubic metres

A board foot was legally defined as a piece of wood
one foot long, twelve inches wide, and one inch thick.
In other words, a board foot was (and still is)
a measure of volume equal to 144 cubic inches.

144 cubic inches = 2360 cubic centimetres = 2.36 litres

The "board foot" was a measure widely used for sawn lumber,
and wood quantities in general (but not for firewood) in
the 1800s and 1900s, continuing into the twenty-first century.

Production  statistics,  inventories,  prices  of  sawn  timber,
and  other  business  information  about  wood  and  wood
products  was  usually  stated  in  terms  of  board  feet.

The term "board feet" (or "feet board measure") was often
abbreviated to simply "feet", as in the items linked above. 
It was generally assumed that everyone understood
"three million feet" of wood meant three million board feet
(or 7100 cubic metres in modern language).
A reasonably representative average price, in 2013
along the eastern coast of the United States, of ordinary
softwood lumber when sold in large quantities, was about
two  dollars  per  board  foot.  At this price, the cost of
three million board feet of lumber would be about
six  million  dollars – just  for  the  wood,
at the shipping dock of the supplier.






For shipyard magnate Edward P. Morse, the late 1910s were very good years.  Buoyed by a fortune amassed during World War One (1914-1918), he constructed the world's largest floating dry dock on the Brooklyn waterfront, where his triumphs included refurbishing the USS George Washington's interiors in just 76 hours so President Woodrow Wilson could sail to the post-armistice talks in Paris.  In 1919, Morse and his wife, Ada, began a breathtaking expansion of their Victorian summer house in the Long Island, New York... Morse's stables, as all his neighbors knew, housed a prized acquisition: General Ruxton, the late Theodore Roosevelt's beloved saddle horse... [links added]

Morse Dock Plant Swept by Flames

Six buildings in the great shipbuilding plant of the Morse Dry Dock and Repair Company, extending along the South Brooklyn waterfront from Fifty-fifth to Sixtieth Streets, were destroyed last night (3-4 December 1917) by a fire probably of incendiary origin... Because this plant has been employed exclusively on Government work of great importance since this country (U.S.A.) entered the war (on 6 April 1917), it has been heavily guarded.  One company of soldiers has been quartered in the (Morse) yards and kept constantly on duty... The Morse docks were declared a Government reservation in September (1917), and thirty-nine saloons near it were closed by the War Department... (because) the dry dock doing Government work was in the same class as an army training camp.

Something to Crow About

...when completed the new dry dock will be the largest sectional floating dry dock and the most efficient dry dock we know anything about in the world... The third of the three sections now in commission was launched on December 28 (1918); it was towed down (from the construction site and) added to the other two sections which had been completed earlier, and on January 16 (1919) the three sections went into (commercial operation), thus actually doubling the dry-docking facilities of our Company.  When the fourth section is completed, that section will be added to the three now in use and our dry-docking facilities will be increased that much more.  The same with the fifth and sixth sections, and before another winter gets around it is expected that all of the six sections will be in operation... an event of this kind is one big event in shipping circles...

Re the “portable boring mill reboring stern tube in place“: Note the flat belt drive powering the portable
boring mill – the power source,  driving  this  flat  belt,  is  located  below  the temporary  staging  that the
workmen are standing on.  This being the 1920s, the power source probably was a portable steam engine.
The men are  wearing  clothing  with  long  loose  sleeves,  working in  close  proximity  to moving parts,
especially the  fast-moving  flat  belt,  that  today  would be  considered  (correctly)  to  be  an  extreme
hazard  not  to be  tolerated  in any workplace – but in the 1920s (and continuing into the 1940s and
even the 1960s) this sort of workplace hazard was taken for granted everywhere in North America.

Edward P. Morse mansion at Cornwallis Park, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, photographed on 6 Nov 2013

When Edward P. Morse died suddenly in August 1930, the exterior of this mansion – “Trail’s End,” his retirement home – was completed, but work on finishing the interior ended.  The interior remained unfinished until 1942, when this property was purchased by the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) for the establishment of a new base for training the thousands of new recruits needed to man the rapidly expanding navy in the early 1940s.  At the beginning of World War Two in 1939, Canada's navy was insignificant – just 7 warships and 3,500 men.  At the end of the war in 1945, Canada had the third-largest allied navy in the world after the United States Navy and the Royal Navy.  This new naval training base, HMCS Cornwallis, played a crucial role in training the thousands of new recruits required.

English-language  new-recruit  training  centre.  With the
expansion  of  the  training  course  to  include  fieldcraft

were acquired  at a  new  site  at Granville Ferry on
