Nomad Builder Interview

On September 28, 2012, in Videos, by Gayle Brantuk

I still have a few more videos to share with you from G5–last year’s Gathering of Boatbuilders. This one is of our Nomad design which is an 18′ Day Cruiser designed in 1958.

This interview is of Luke Hargenrader whose father John actually built the Nomad that he named “Betty Boop”. Luke is also the Uncle of another of our builders, Rory Hamilton (darthplywood on Forum) who built the Sea Knight inspired by Luke’s father (Rory’s grandfather).  I’ll post Rory’s interview next week. What a legacy one man has created…

Have you considered that? When you build a boat, you really are leaving a piece of your history behind. Pretty cool, huh? Enjoy the video!
