Other attractions are arts and crafts booths.  Grab a bite from one of the many food carts and sit and relax by the water while listening to local musical groups.

Lastly, an interview with sisters Mishawn and Danielle who own a gorgeous boat – 1935 Ed Monk Sr. Ray Gillespie - 92 years young and loving every second of the Fair he has attended for 33 years straight. Two weeks ago, I met Chris Finks (Maritime Heritage Coalition) at the Portland Yacht Club to personally tour several of the historic and wonderful wooden boats his friends own and moor at the Yacht Club, and to talk shop (wooden boat shop of course).
Finally, I met with and interviewed Mark Hall who owns a 1961 Chris Craft Constellation that is 55′ of craftsmanship and stateliness.

This week’s interview is with Peter Crim of the Wind and Oar Boat School in Portland, OR. Peter grew up on the east coast, and from the age of 6 his parents owned and sailed wooden boats and sailboats of various sizes including a 34′ Alden  cruising boat.


After spending 20+ years in the technology and building industries, Peter hung up his professional career and headed for Brooklin, ME to attend the Wooden Boat School in 2010. Click on the green player button above to listen to the interview and learn more about Peter’s journey from high tech executive to boat school founder and wooden boat builder. Ray started the local Sea Scout program in 1965, and has been continuously registered as a boy scout since 1930! I want to build a community of people from all over the world who want to connect, learn, share stories and photos, and have fun with wooden boats.
