Today’s podcast is a recording I did with Rich Johanson at the Pocket Yacht Palooza in June 2016.

Rich is a graduate and now employee of the NW School of Wooden Boatbuilding, and the proud owner of Philbrick Boats! Philbrick boats was founded in 1934 by Don Philbrick with the mission of building gorgeous wooden powerboats. And Rich is carrying on that tradition!
