PODCAST SHOW NOTES

Today’s podcast contains two interviews from the 2013 Olympia,WA Wooden Boat Fair.  The first interview is with Tom Pearson.  Tom is a volunteer for the Tugboat Sandman.  She was built and designed by Crawford & Reid in Tacoma, WA and launched in 1910.  Sandman is 59′ 10″ x 14′ 6″ and is planked with old growth Douglas Fir.  She was a working tug until 1987 and has spent her entire life in Puget Sound.

The second interview is with Michael Fife who is co-owner of the classic Yacht Naida.  Naida is a 48′ Grebe built in Hollywood in 1935 and believed to have first been owned by Humphrey  Bogart.  She is a bridge-deck design with elegant tuck-n-roll upholstery, bronze engine controls, and a colorful leaded glass hatch.
