Rank #1: ProBoat Readers Theatre Incident At Half-Way Harbor

Podcast cover
Read more
This year’s offering begins, “Imagine if you will, a time, a place, where men gathered together to lay glass cloth in a mold, slather it with resin, and – the greatest surprise of all – they actually made a living doing it. This noble band of brothers carried on the traditions begun centuries before. Many of them cannot even imagine any other life. And there’s a very good reason for that. This isn’t any ordinary boatyard. The men here will never leave. And they’ll never grow up. “
Maybe it’s an ordinary boat yard after all. You can be the judge. The Help Wanted sign is always posted at . . . wait for it . . . the Boatyard Zone.

Rank #3: Surveying the America's Cup and Other Outlandish Tales

Surveying the America’s Cup and Other Outlandish Tales
One of the questions coming out of San Francisco Bay this year is, “What’s going to happen to those $16 million boats after it’s all over?” And that got us wondering: What will happen? Will some surveyor get the call to hustle on over and write up the paperwork for a pre-purchase survey? That could be fun.
For this show, we’ll talk about what takes place when a surveyor is faced with preparing a C&V or damage claim for a vessel that just doesn’t fit into our normal parameters. How do you set insurance values and repair costs for rare or unusual craft? And it’s not all high-end either. At what point do you look at something that barely floats and say, “I’m sorry, but I really can’t call that a boat, at least not until you remove the raccoons.”
