As of 12-30-11, you can watch the Modern Marvels episode here. The History Channel website shifts often and we'll try to keep the link updated. Our segment starts around 32:00.
The Modern Marvels episode "Wood" on H2 (formerly History International) features a segment on Chesapeake Light Craft and our Cocktail Class Racer kits! This episode will repeat at intervals on that channel.
Back in August we turned our shop over to a film crew from the History Channel as they filmed an episode of their long-running show, Modern Marvels.
The topic of this particular show is wood technology, and they chose CLC's wood-epoxy composite boatbuilding techniques to illustrate one aspect of wood technology. For the shoot, we assembled four of the upcoming Cocktail Class Racer
kits to different stages, cooking-show style, so we could film a stitch-and-glue boatbuilding project from start to finish. The narrator had a few minor misfires---the Cocktail Class is a brand new kit and thus hardly our "most popular" as of this writing. But it's a nice segment showing a lot of the CLC shop and crew in action. Thanks to staffers Steve, Joey, Matt, and David, and especially the Edmonds family (who built the boat in the on-water shots) for their help in filming!
