PODCAST SHOW NOTES

Today’s podcast contains two interviews from the NW School of Wooden Boatbuilding in Port Hadlock, WA.  The first interview is with Steve Stanton.  Steve is a retired law enforcement officer from Colorado and is a student this year at the School.  Hear Steve share his insights about the School and some of the fun things he is learning.

The second interview is with Bruce Blatchley, Contemporary Instructor at the School.  Bruce and I talk about the progress of the 62′ day sailor “Sliver”, cold molded boat building, the School’s Calkins Bartender boat build, Bruce’s wooden surf board build, and other fun stuff.  You can find out more about Bruce’s personal history in the previous interview I did with Bruce – HOWB022.
