The builder’s woodworking activities started out in his early years with all
sorts of projects as a kid including an airplane at age seven. (Actually only one
wing was completed and it was too heavy to carry up from the basement). Although
unrecognized at the time, a wonderful seventh grade wood shop teacher who had an
obsession with the importance of the hand plane was a big influence in the future
boat builder’s capabilities.
A degree in economics and a career in business and marketing followed with
wood working projects on a hobby or as needed basis. This included a house
building project and building a boat in the living room(but that’s another story).
An early retirement and ice boat building project led to the full blown boat
building hobby that became an obsession. Faced with the situation of creating an
inventory of boats for personal use that has exceeded storing and mooring capacity,
the builder began accepting building commissions to satisfy the hobby addiction.
The rest is history.
