Steve D’Antonio, technical editor of PassageMaker magazine and vice president of Zimmerman Marine, a full-service boatyard and custom boatbuilder in Mathews, Va., is striking out on his own. D’Antonio announced in October that he has formed a new company, Steve D’Antonio Marine Consulting, through which he will work with marine manufacturers as well as individual boat owners.

“My commitment to my readers always has been to give them information that will make it easier, less costly and safer to enjoy their love of boating,” D’Antonio says.

After five years as vice president of Zimmerman Marine, D’Antonio, who has written several technical articles for Soundings, says he will continue to work with the yard in a consulting capacity. He can be contacted by e-mail at stevedmc@wildblue.net and eventually through his Web site, www.stevedmarineconsulting.com, which is currently under development.
