2018 Wooden Boat Festival has ended

Dan Mattson

Dan grew up enjoying the Columbia River and San Juan Islands on his family's fine wooden power boats (Richardson, Tollycraft, Chris Craft and more). He built his first wooden boat - an '8 pram - in high school. After a long respite of 25 years, he began building again - a skin-on-frame kayak, a stitch and glue kayak, and a Sassafras canoe. He is currently building a SCAMP micro cruising sailboat (these boats take a while :D). Dan also started a wooden boat podcast in 2011 - Hooked On Wooden Boats - and has published over 200 episodes. In his spare time, he camps and bikes with his wife of 35 years, builds his scamp, pursues his Christian walk, and enjoys his 5 sons, 4 daughters-in-law, and 2 grand daughters.
