Pocketship Builders,

I'm very interested in building a Pocketship. Before I start this ominous labor of love, I'd really like to see a Pocketship in person. I live in Southeastern Idaho. Might there be a builder in Salt Lake City, UT or Boise Idaho, or Jackson Hole MT? Have van, willing to drive. Please give me a call if you live anywhere nearby.

OK, how about the nearest Pocketship to Idaho in the West?

I'm registered to have mine at the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend this year -- I'm still a little tentative on it based on the whole COVD situation, but hope to make it.

There used to be a professionally built PocketShip based out of Sandpoint or Coeur d'Alene, but not sure who the owner is/was.

I think Jer McManus was in western MT.

I have the boat built in Montana by Jerry McManus . It is now in Wenatchee Washington. I talked to Brent a few weeks ago about my experience so far with a Pocketship. I would be a good 7-8 hours drive from Rigby, ID but would happy to give you a tour/sail if you have a reason to come by this way . Tom
