Today’s podcast is a recording I did with Robert d’Arcy Captain of the Schooner Martha, during the 2015 Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. We talked about Robert’s adventures with family and crew taking Martha on a yearlong voyage to Mexico, California, Hawaii and other far away places.

Check our HOWB 062 for an interview I did with Robert about his own wooden boat journey.

Today’s podcast is a recording I did with John Lockwood of Pygmy Boats during the 2015 Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. We talked about John’s world travels (at the time John was about 2 years into his around the world trip), boats, paddles and John touched (quite) a little on political issues!

No festival is complete without a SCAMP! This is Luna, meticulously built by Dale Simonson of BC. She is a beauty.

Thanks for doing the interview Jake! I wish you the best with all your future boating endeavors!

I’m taking a break from my Podcast Vacation today to publish another episode of HOWB :D.

Today’s podcast is a recording I did about an hour after the 2015 Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival had ended. I talk about the highlights of the festival and some of the fun stuff I did! I was there for the entire Festival and had an absolute blast as usual.

I recorded about 8 interviews during the festival which I will be playing over the next few months!

Here are a few highlights of the festival for me:

  • Doing 8 interviews with some amazing folks – John Harris, John Lockwood, Jake Beattie (R2AK), Robert D’Arcy, Marty Loken, Dale Simonson, Pete Leenhouts, Josh Colvin
  • Attending a presentation on mast building by Bruce Tipton – the birds mouth mast may be cool but probably overrated. There are other ways to build a mast just as strong and light without all the work and waste
  • Meeting John Carinha in person
  • Sleeping in the canopy of my truck for the first time (with CPAP machine on :D)
  • Getting ideas for my SCAMP
  • Giving my SCAMP class/presentation
  • Meeting Rob O’Toole
  • Encouragement from listeners!
