I found this brief profile of one of the state’s last shipwrights while researching the history of shipbuilding in Massachusetts. Harold Burnham’s ancestors started building boats in the 1600s in Essex on the North Shore. He’s still at it today, preserving a bit of history one tree at a time.
One thought on ““I don’t want to be the last boat builder””
If you are interested in Harold you might want to watch this video I did about six years ago:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvGRzCZZS7E
