Today’s podcast is an interview with Marty Loken – organizer of the Port Townsend Pocket Yachters and the 3rd annual Pocket Yacht Palooza in Port Townsend.

Marty is an avid small boat enthusiast, having come full circle from owning larger vessels and yachts (including a Lake Union Dream Boat) to realizing the amazing benefits of trailerable boats that are less expensive to own and maintain, easier to get to and from the water, and just plain get used more.

In this interview with Marty, we discuss his current projects, the benefits of small boats, and the 3rd Annual Pocket Yacht Palooza.
