Hey, thanks for the podcast!
I’ve been listening to it today, while moving my sorry hangover ass to work, and it made my morning a little brighter. Also, checked Byrnes’ designs: not a boat I’d like to build, but fine nevertheless. They have a kind of modern-ish look, I think, with these oval illuminators and the sides that become the roof with no transition.
Anyway, great interview, great podcast, thank you.
