Some friends shot a few videos of me sailing the other day. Here's a brief clip.


Here are some videos from Russia demonstrating a new brushable insulating compound. Might be a good thing for the inside of metal hulls, or over cooking areas. Sorry it's all in Russian, but the images demonstrate it well.


Nice, but I found this one more interesting:

And here's an instructional video for making your own:

Dangit, I didn't need another project!


Here's another clip of my Pathfinder from my 8/31/2012 sail. This time, under jib & jigger while waiting for some friends to "catch up".

TJH Pathfinder "My Darling Audra"

With John's permission, I recorded a video of a talk that John Welsford and Howard Rice gave at the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival last Saturday. The talk was entitled "Choosing the right small wooden boat". Just short of an hour long, the talk was very informative and packed with useful information, especially for those interested in what safety features to look for in a small boat. I understand some of this information will be in an upcoming video and a book to be co-authored by Howard and John. Here is the link. Hope you find it useful.

Here's a collection of pictures from my Spindrift 11N build. Thanks all who answered many questions when I was working on her.


See the top story on my website about the Gozzo, an ancient hull design that is very popular in the Mediterranean. It was originally a lateen rigged fishing boat that has survived many generations and found new life in many different styles!

Click on the Gozzo link for about 25 photos.
