This episode is an interview with John Welsford recorded while we I was at the NW Maritime Center during SCAMP Camp in August of this year.  John is my New Zealand correspondent and will be bringing us occasional updates from his home country including this one today.

During the interview, John discusses plane sharpening, SCAMP Camp, the Small Craft Skills Academy, his Boat Design Business and what’s happening with the wooden boat community in New Zealand.
