Since moving to Anacortes in 1986 to get involved in the yacht repair industry, I have had many—and I mean many—great experiences!
One in particular was removing a pair of high-horsepower Ford diesel engines that were not performing to the requirements needed for the application, and replacing them with a pair of V10 M.A.N. high-performance marine diesels in a 70? Heisley, with Arneson surface piercing outdrives. This particular project was a featured article in Sea Magazine.
Other great experiences include serving as the chief engineer on a 175' crab boat, working long line and freighter vessels in the Bering Sea, and crossing the Gulf of Alaska from Dutch Harbor to Seattle nine times. Also, I spent a season in Bristol Bay as an independent marine mechanic, and was even hired out as a deck hand to give gill netting a try.
In 2000, I went to Dana Point, California, to work for Pacific Asian Enterprise, which eventually led me to be the commissioning manager of Nordhavn yachts. While there, I increased the work force from three to 12, was instrumental in setting up the Stuart, Florida, commissioning department, and had the best customer satisfaction to date. I also participated in the N.A.R. Atlantic crossing as the flotilla fleet captain. Upon arrival in Gibraltar, I turned around and delivered the 57’ Nordhavn known as Atlantic Escort to South Hampton, England.
Since then I've delivered many vessels up and down the Pacific Coast, the Atlantic Coast, Baja, Australia and one trip through the Panama Canal. Oh, and I've worked as a charter boat captain and dock master for Anacortes Yacht Charters.
Now, I work with my team to make Anacortes Marine Group the most trusted marine service shop in Anacortes.
