ProBoat Radio, a weekly online show created for the readers of Professional BoatBuilder magazine by Carl Cramer and Barbara Jean Walsh, will no longer air new episodes, but fans can access the complete archives of past shows.

The radio show ran once a week for more than 200 episodes, covering a variety of topics, as well as one melodrama and a “Twilight Zone” parody.

Ann Avary, of the Northwest Center of Excellence, hosted a Pacific focus once a month, and marine surveyors Pat Kearns, Jon Klopman and Steve Knox were “First Tuesday” regulars.

Additional guests included America’s Cup designers, marine educators, inventors, gearheads, weather experts, riggers, boatyard owners, circumnavigators, boatbuilders, project managers, regulators, lawyers, composites experts and all manner of other folk who keep the marine industry turning.

Walsh reported from countries that included China, India and England, and guests were interviewed from various locations while fishing, kayaking, awaiting a plane or attending a boat show.

The shows are listed in chronological order and each description should include a live link to an audio file as well as information about the guest and topic.
