One phrase comes to mind when I think of Howard… “What a hoot” I have known Howard for several years now, and he is a true joy to be around. He lives and breaths classic boats and is tireless in his efforts to help drive the hobby to new areas. He is at all the shows, participating, and without a doubt the leading expert on Whirlwind Boats. This is not because Howard is just into this stuff. It’s because it’s in him. To quote him“I was held prisoner on an antique boat as a child,” Howard is the first guy to have an answer for you and a creative perspective on repairs and tricks of the trade if that is what you need. And with these boats, that is a key. You can read more about him on his web site. Click here! Or his main site oldtimeworld.com... or just stop by at any show and say hi. Trust me, he will make you feel like you are old pals within seconds. Here’s to you Howard…. My yachting cap is off to you.
