by admin on February 16, 2014


Today’s podcast episode is an interview with small boat builder, adventurer, and author Tom Pamperin. Tom is originally from Wisconsin and currently on assignment teaching English in Kuwait City, Kuwait.

Tom built his current boat – Jagular – a few years back and has experienced a series of adventures (or “(mis)adventures” as Tom calls them) in this $300 sailboat. Tom is writing a book about his fun times on the water – check out his Kickstarter Campaign to fund publishing of the book.

Here’s some pics to enjoy:

Thanks for doing the interview Tom.  I wish you the best with all your future small boat endeavors.


I recently purchased a Dimplex portable shop heater for my 450 square foot shop and it works great! The best thing about it though is that it only cost $100.  It is 220v, 30amp and has a built in thermostat.  If you are interested, click this link for more info:  Heater.
