BUILDING BETTER BOATS
I love boats. I really love classic Carolina boats. To me, there is nothing prettier on the ocean. I am in awe of what a group of craftsman can do with a pile of lumber and a drive and passion for creating something. I grew up fishing and boating, and in my life have drawn way more boats and fish than I'll ever get to drive or catch. I am consumed by them. Not just the lines, as both boats and fish share a bond of being capable of beauty, which is almost unimaginable.
Both boats and fish are powerful, sleek, functional, and practical. Both have curves that seem to have a flow and shape that would be impossible to recreate. I believe if you want to succeed in designing and building boats, it doesn't hurt to look at our quarry for guidance. The very nature of the design of the fish we chase around the world could be instilled in our builds.
Marlin and Tuna don't have useless appendages. Every part of their being is purpose built. From head to tail, it's all business. From stem to stern, so are we.
