A summer job on a salmon boat in Alaska is where DAVID FAWLEY first fell in love with boats and the sea. Working as a storyteller in the San Francisco Bay area then led him to a stint on a tall ship, which sealed his fate. As the next logical step in a growing obsession, David attended The Landing School of Boatbuilding and Design in Kennebunk, Maine. As a newly minted professional boatbuilder, he built mahogany runabout replicas for Stone Boat Yard in Alameda, California, before moving East to work at Cutts and Case, Inc. in Oxford, Maryland. Now marrying his love of boatbuilding with extensive kayaking experience, David is the production manager at Chesapeake Light Craft in Annapolis, Maryland.
