PODCAST SHOW NOTES – Episode #29
Interview – Steve Chapain Point Hudson Boat Shop
Steve grew up in Minnesota canoeing and water skiing with his family and friends. As a young adult he visited his brother in Washington state, found Port Townsend and decided that was his sweet spot. After moving there, he met Bob Prothero (late founder of Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building) and enrolled at the boat school so, in his words, he could “fix my own boats”. After graduating, he did a few restoration projects and soon had his own shop and wooden boat repair and building business -Point Hudson Boat Repair.
