(First airdate: March 13, 2018) SHIPWRIGHT MARTIN MILLS - A PASSION FOR BOAT BUILDING. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Martin Mills, who is one of the 12 partners in the Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op. Not everyone realizes that there are as many - if not more - people employed down at the Boat Haven than at the Mill. The maritime trades are a key underpinning of the local economy. The Co-op’s business model means these skilled tradesmen share in things like rent, bookkeeping and even many tools. All receive an hourly wage and if there’s an annual profit, it’s shared.
This week on the Compass we meet Tessa Hulls, a recent Port Townsend transplant who writes biographies for the Atlas Obscura Kick-Ass Women Series and who is, in fact, herself a fairly kick-ass woman. And then we take a look at the roll-out of a world-class bicycle repair teaching institution right here in Port Townsend.
