Our Working Waterfront ~ 11/05

On Our Working Waterfront today we bring you a reprise of a visit with Dave Thompson, our Boatyard’s iconic shipwright.  We learn a little about his life, his career, and his mentoring of past and current young shipwrights and apprentices that have graced his open-air shop. His “Career of a Lifetime” has spanned the decades here, from the mid-1970s to present day, as apprentice, as advisor to artisans, as the Yard’s advocate, as two-term Port Commissioner,  and overall generous soul.  Oh, and he also reveals the origin of “Charlie Noble Enterprises” (a.k.a. Thompson Boat)!
