Today’s podcast is an interview with Hugh Harwood of Cumberland, Maine. Hugh grew up around wooden boats and got the bug at an early age while boating with family and friends on the east coast.

In 2013 he purchased a 1932 bridge deck cruiser – Katie Mack – in Tacoma, WA and had her shipped to Maine. She is undergoing a complete restoration and is an absolutely beautiful vessel. Hugh and Pamela Harwood will use her to gently ply the summertime waters of the east coast – I wish I could join you 😀
