Matt Murphy interviews Rick Barkhuff


WoodenBoat magazine editor Matt Murphy interviews Rick Barkhuff. Rick has been an instructor with the Landing School of Boatbuilding and Design in Arundel, Maine, since 1990. And he has been building and repairing fine wooden boats since 1980. The conversation ranges from the Landing School’s humble beginnings to its current status as as a leader in boatbuilding, design, and systems education. Rick also describes how he delivered the school’s curriculum online, during the COVID-19 lockdown, by having students build a fleet of fine models of the B.B. Crowninshield-designed Dark Harbor 17½.
