Philip Bloom borrowed Eric Kessler’s RED Epic for a few days and found Mike the owner of Great Lakes Boat Building Company, a wooden boat company. Wooden boats are rare to come by these days and Mike’s expertise and skill in making them from hand is even rarer.

The detail shots in this video are quite impressive so please take the time to watch above.

Interesting tidbit: Mike’s boats have been featured in several Disney films such as Pirates of the Caribbean.
