Nice video link. Maine is a special place. Of course, the best way to truly appreciate the summer here is to survive a winter.

I think that's part of the reason we build some of the finest boats in the world.. We have all winter to pay attention to the small but important details!

You don't see stuff like this coming out of to many other states, or countries for that matter, on a regular basis! Quality like this is common place in Maine..

That link seems to be a trailer for a longer-format movie, apparently produced by Gary Jobson. If I read it correctly, the full feature releases today. Or did I misunderstand that?

John the link in Maine Sails post!
Yes, those are gorgeous boats!!

But I was referring to the link in the O.P. Is there a full-length movie we can all watch this winter?

Maine Sail, Hal..

Thank you..

Initially I was goind to say..."well..you haven't seen much around the World"..

Then I sat down..remembered the day I spent with Dan in MAine, the boat yards I saw, the museum, the boats...

I decided..I have to give it to him...some of the best looking if not the best looking boats in the Worls, did come out of Maine...NO QUESTION ABOUT IT...

We have some really nice ones...but not at such rate of production

Thank you..

Alex

The video was pretty cool. but these guys aren't really real main boat builders, these guys are the investment boat builders. people like Ralph Stanley and Nat and Benjamin are the ones that build the traditional classics (owners alongside shipwrights). Uppermanagement boatbuilding isn't what I think of when I think of main boatbuilding.

Except that we were in Essex, on Cape Ann, in Massachusetts... which Maine used to be a part of a long time ago. :D

LOL... yeah, I can see how Cape Ann and Maine could be confused, they're fairly similar in many ways, and about the same distance from where he was in NH. :)
