Essex show returns for a third year
The Spring Boat Show returns April 27-29 to the Brewer Dauntless Marina on the Connecticut River waterfront in Essex, Conn. “The small boutique format provides for very personalized attention while viewing boats,” says Douglas Domenie, vice president and general manager of Brewer Dauntless Shipyard.
“We’re not going to fit!” cried Nancy, as the swing span caught the trawler.
President and owner of C. Raymond Hunt AssociatesWhen you think deep-vee powerboats, the legendary Ray Hunt comes to mind. Think of this man, too: John Deknatel, president and owner of C. Raymond Hunt Associates in New Bedford, Mass.
A Harvard graduate, Deknatel studied architecture and began working for Philip Rhodes in the early 1960s. He hooked up with Hunt as his business partner in 1966. Since then, he has concentrated on planing-hull design and fine-tuning the Hunt deep-vee hull form.
Patrick Healey rarely goes a week without fishing one of his Viking yachts. I caught up with Healey, Viking’s executive vice president, while he was in the thick of a seven-day angling bender that began by chasing sailfish off Jupiter, Fla., on a Viking 70 and ended aboard a 50-footer in a hunt for Pacific sailfish off Los Suenos, Costa Rica.
