Boat BuilderS&C Marine － Hobe Sound, FL
At S&C marine our goal was to buy boats and "flip" them.
This included a 55 foot Bertram sport-fish, and a 56 foot
Hatteras motor yacht.
We bought the boats in extreme disrepair and in the case of the Bertram sunken.
included installation of all major electrical, plumbing, water, mechanical and interior woodwork.
These boats were
basically re-built from the hull up.
Each boat took almost two years to rebuild.
This gave me hands on training with
most hand and power tools known.
As well as I had to map out all major services (water, electric, air conditioning,
etc.) and solve any and all problems which arose.
I learned valuable problem solving and troubleshooting techniques
which I still use to this day.
This experience taught me how to be "handy" and fix any and everything.
