If you’ve ever wondered how those beautiful Maine lobster boats and their pleasureboat sisters are put together, step by step, out of wood, here’s a video you shouldn’t miss. It was shot by our videographer friend Jeff Dobbs who has produced a number of other great videos that, like this one, center around Mt. Desert Island, in Maine, where he lives. Boatbuilder Robert “Chummy” Rich is the subject here, and we think you’ll enjoy watching him build the 28’ plank-on-frame ANDROMEDA from scratch, and learn a lot as well.
