    Ep.87: Restoration of the Schooner L.A. DUNTON

    Ep.87: Restoration of the Schooner L.A. DUNTON

    We are very lucky in New England to have an organization like Mystic Seaport and its Henry B. Du Pont Preservation Shipyard, the first shipyard in the nation dedicated to the preservation of historic vessels, both large and small. Join us on this episode of ATB as we talk with Walt Ansel, Director of the Henry B. du Pont Preservation Shipyard, about their ongoing restoration of one of the last remaining Grand Banks fishing schooners in existence, the L.A. DUNTON.

    Ep.86: Wreck Diving with Eric Takakjian

    Ep.86: Wreck Diving with Eric Takakjian

    Wreck diving is a perfect mix of maritime history and ocean exploration and that is why we at ATB are fascinated with the subject.  For the past five decades, Eric Takajian has been diving on deepest and most infamous wrecks in the world and at the same time discovering over seventy of history’s most notorious lost ships. From German U-Boats to ocean liners, if it sank on the East Coast of the United States, chances are Eric has dove to find them.  Join us as we talk with Eric about the exhilaration and dangers of a sport that has evolved from a niche hobby into a highly sophisticated and technologically advanced endeavor.

    Ep.85: Sara Stone

    Ep.85: Sara Stone

    The America’s Cup has always been about pushing yacht design to the limit and embracing changes to keep the sport relevant for future sailors. But over the past 153 years, the teams have been predominantly filled with male crews with opportunities few and far between for female sailors to compete. In a move to change that, the organizers of the 37th America’s Cup have opened the door to the world’s best female sailors with the inaugural Puig Woman’s America’s Cup, a regatta to be sailed in the run up to New Zealand’s defense later on this fall in Barcelona. Late last year, our guest Sara Stone, was announced as a member of the first NYYC American Magic Woman’s team but there has been little time to celebrate because Sara has been keeping busy as a new member the US SailGP team and crewing with the Quantum Racing Team in the highly competitive TP52 Series. We catch up with Sara to talk about her sailing career, what it means to sail into the history books and what’s next.

    Ep.84: Must Be Nice Lobster

    Ep.84: Must Be Nice Lobster

    The expression, “Must Be Nice” is often a dig towards someone else's perceived luck or easy road to success. Whoa, you vacationed in Aspen... MUST BE NICE! Today's guest, Sadie Samuels, might single-handedly change that phrase's definition. Starting at the age of 7, Sadie has made her own luck with an unstoppable drive to catch lobsters. Now with a few seasons under her belt and a few traps over the rail, Sadie's love for lobstering has grown into not only running her own boat, but also owning and operating her own restaurant in Belfast, Maine; both of which are proudly named, Must Be Nice.
     
    Take a listen as we meet Sadie and learn the ups and downs of lobstering DownEast.

    EP. 83: Shaw & Tenney

    EP. 83: Shaw & Tenney

    Shaw & Tenney has been supplying traditional, heirloom quality oars and paddles since 1858. As the second oldest manufacturer of marine products in the U.S., little has changed over those 165 years. In fact, the company has only been owned by three families until this summer when Neil Gutekunst took the reins. A Marine Corps veteran, Neil is not afraid of getting his hands dirty and we talk to him about all things Maine, paddling and most importantly craftsmanship. Listen in!

    EP. 82: Flying Boat Film

    With the dawn of the iconic flying boat, Trans-Pacific travel that once measured in weeks by ship could be accomplished in only days. These island-hopping aircraft were passports to worlds that were once only seen in books. Travel is different these days, but there are a handful of dedicated aviators who are keeping that dream alive and their stories are featured in the beautiful film, Flying Boat. Join us as we sit down with the film’s director, Dirk Brawn, to talk about these magnificent machines & their extraordinary pilots.

Great Show

Love these guys hope to meet them one day. Podcast is short concise and funny. Stick around for the bloopers at the end. Can’t say enough good things about this podcast.

You asked for reviews, you’re gonna get one…

Where do I begin? For as long as I’ve listened I’ve always wondered what these mythical “insta-webs” are, is it a new app that I don’t know of? Hopefully someday we’ll be able to follow you two on there… I do love how there’s always an obscure movie reference, guaranteed to be a cult classic! Which brings me to my next point, when’s the next movie night!?! We’re no longer in a global pandemic, there are no longer unprecedented times! In conclusion, show is always great! News stories always end up hysterical somehow. Bloopers are great, just the right amount of off key trumpet. An ever growing list of super interesting local voices and stories. Always a well thought out interview with compelling questions.

Great Episode and podcast

I loved the opportunity to hear about a local legend continuing her restoration right down the coast in CT! Can’t wait to see Coronet in the future as she sails up the Narragansett bay!
