Thumbs up "Professional Boatbuilder Magazine" Interviews Brownie...

Congratulations to Allan Brown("Brownie"), on a great interview & write-up by writer Dan Spurr, in the new December/January issue of Professional Boatbuilder Magazine. Howard Abbey was part of this same interview as well, in which they both reveal some great little known history of ThunderBoat Row, Don Aronow, Art Seigel & Dudley Whitman's Challenger Marine(Miami), and much, much more, about the birth of powerboat building in South Florida. Thanks for the intrigueing read. Ed

Howard Abbey flagging down the concrete truck to add weight to the Hatteras - funny stuff! And that dimple in the CoverGirl 38 Cig bottom ..those must have been some interesting prod. dev. meetings there Brownie. Was familiar with the Nova but never made the connection to Wellcrafts Nova. Good reading,

It's online here : http://www.proboat-digital.com/proboat/200612/ for "senior" readers use the page flipper at the top next to the logo - 7 pages long. Full screen option helps too.
