      I knew Payson only from books and plans and one telephone call. I am convinced that he was one of the authentic boat builders and teachers of his generation. If we're lucky, maybe one of this generation will mature into the future "Dynamite." RIP Mr. Payson. God fill your sails.

Payson was definitely "old school" in all the best downeast ways, though I never met him I did cruise around his Thomaston, or E. Thomaston, stomping grounds, on a trip up to Maine. He was a cheerful, self-sufficient, resourceful and salty soul who helped an unbelievable number of people get going in the adventure of owner-built boats.
