HOWB 149 – Interview | Howard Rice on the SCAMP Micro-Cruising Phenom, A New Self Rescue Technique, and Prepping a SCAMP for Offshore Cruising

by admin on November 13, 2014


On this week’s episode I had the opportunity to sit down with Howard Rice of the Small Craft Skills Academy. We met up at the NWMC during SCAMP Camp #5 in Port Townsend, WA.

At the top of the discussion (of course) was the SCAMP and the newest development in self-rescue – the “elevator”, to get oneself back in the SCAMP after a capsize. Howard also discussed new developments at the SCSA, and some of the details of modifications he is making to a stock SCAMP to prepare for a yet unannounced small boat adventure Howard will be embarking on soon.

You can listen to previous interviews I did with Howard at HOWB039 and HOWB080.
