We recently met some of the latter people at Cobalt Boats and Regal Marine, but you find them at builders throughout the industry. For them, boatbuilding is not just a job, it’s a passion — a craft they take immense pride in and insist on not just doing, but doing right. These are the people who agonize over a boat’s form, obsess on its function and then painstakingly put it all together, piece by well-crafted piece. If something’s not right, they fix it. And when they discover how to do it better, they do so.
