On this week’s episode I had the opportunity to sit down with Howard Rice of the Small Craft Skills Academy. We met up at the NWMC during SCAMP Camp #5 in Port Townsend, WA.

At the top of the discussion (of course) was the SCAMP and the newest development in self-rescue – the “elevator”, to get oneself back in the SCAMP after a capsize. Howard also discussed new developments at the SCSA, and some of the details of modifications he is making to a stock SCAMP to prepare for a yet unannounced small boat adventure Howard will be embarking on soon.

You can listen to previous interviews I did with Howard at HOWB039 and HOWB080.

On this week’s episode I had the opportunity to sit down with Tony Grove and Tobi Elliot of Gabriola Island, BC.  Tony is restoring the 1897 built Sloop Dorothy, and Tobi is the videographer filming a documentary on the project.

Dorothy was built in 1897 on Vancouver Island, BC. She is a 34′ LOA gaff rigged sloop with a 9′ beam and 5′ draft. She is red cedar planked on oak and fastened with copper rivets and roves and has an elegant fan tail design.

On this week’s episode I had the opportunity to sit down and do my second interview with Lin and Larry Pardey of sailing fame.

During the 45 minute discussion, I peppered the Pardeys with questions such as:

  • Top 10 mistakes made in offshore cruising
  • How to prepare for a circumnavigation
  • How to select the right boat for blue water cruising
  • Your favorite destinations around the world

We have a great time and the answers were amazing (as you might expect).

You can listen to the previous interviews I did with the Pardeys at HOWB 052.
