Will Ansel, boatbuilder.

A few years ago I had the fortune of meeting Will Ansel, a boatbuilder and author, on a drive through midcoast Maine. It was a short visit, I had pulled on to the side of the road to look at the building that I would soon find out Mr. Ansel's workshop. Ansel spent years working in the boat building industry in Mystic, Connecticut, and now resides on the Maine coast. In 2010 he turned 90 and was busy working with the children at Georgetown Elementary building a boat. His book - A Kid's Book on Boatbuilding.
