    Never heard of him.

    Do you have a company name?

    That is a builder who was around in the 1920s or 1930s, wasn't he? I seem to remember an old photo of him & my great grandfather, sitting on my g-gfather's boat. May even have been the 1940s, I'll dig it out. wood power yachts? The historical boats society there should have some info.

    Edit: No, just saw your thread on your project. Couldn't be the guy I'm thinking of, unless your boats much older than it seems.
