Today’s podcast is an interview with Brent Butikofer of Rigby, ID. After owning several sailboats, Brent decided to build his own. He wanted an easily handled boat, that wasn’t too big or cumbersome to get in and out of the water, yet was seaworthy and fun. After doing his research, Brent landed on the SCAMP micro-cruising phenom :D.

Brent has a blog on his build – Building Shackleton – which is phenomenal. There are lots of great pictures and details. Brent is also and avid bicyclist – check out his cycling blog at Riding Idaho.
