Our Working Waterfront ~ 7/16

L to R: Apprentice Patrick Kingshill, Shipwrights Leo Goolden, Erik Fahlstrom, and Peter Stein

KPTZ Host Chris Bricker checks in with Port Director & Co-Host Eron Berg for his monthly update on all things Port. And then Port Commissioner & Co-Host Pam Petranek introduces young shipwrights Peter Stein, Erik Fahlstrom, and Leo Goolden, along with volunteer apprentice and sculptor, Patrick Kingshill.
Chris has a conversation with them about how the marine trades’ 40 year history of synergy here in the Boatyard has cultivated a giving atmosphere where craftsmanship is shared through true apprenticeship.
Peter and Erik have rented the buildings formerly occupied by the Shipwrights Co-Op, and are providing another haven for independent workers to garner and share more skills. Leo just moved his business, Sampson Boat Company, and his boat, Tally Ho, to Pete and Erik’s expanding adventure as their new business tenant. They’re all examples of how a rising tide of cooperation is one that lifts all boats.
