HOWB 169 – Ed Sturgeon | Traditional Builder, Restorer & Wooden Boat Enthusiast

by admin on April 16, 2015


Today’s podcast is with Ed Sturgeon of Surrey, BC. The son of a carpenter, Ed took to boatbuilding after one year of college in Nova Scotia. Sturgeon worked in several boat yards and built homes (including wood framed homes constructed on the beach in Ireland) , before starting his own boat building and restoration business –

Ed and Louise have been in Surrey for the last 2 years and Sturgeon’s current project is the restoration of Richochet, a 46’ Kettenburg PCC Sloop built in 1956. Ed and Louise also enjoy camp cruising on their traditional double ended 18′ Nomans Land Cat Ketch.
