#Bonus. Thanks to Weems & Plath for sponsoring this episode of the podcast! Matt Rutherford joins the show once again to discuss his imminent departure for Japan and the whirlwind of a time he's had in California for the past fortnight getting the boat ready. Matt and Nicole Trenholm arrived at the WD Schock facility on April 1 to find their loaner boat, hull #1 of the new Harbor 29, still in the mold! Over the next two weeks he and the team at Schock managed to finish the boat in time for the Strictly Sail Pacific show in Oakland, and Matt and Nicole hope to shove off on the Ocean Research Project's second major expedition on April 20. Matt tells Andy the story of how it all came together in California over the past two weeks. Check out 59-north.com for more content from this episode. Enjoy!
