editor Eileen Mansfield recently visited the Hacker
Boat Company, where beautiful wooden Hacker
Crafts are still made by hand. Here she talks with Bob
Rockwell of Hacker as the cockpits of a 30-foot runabout
are cut out. Look for our upcoming story in the September
issue of Power & Motoryacht about the history
of these amazing boats and the men who make them.
This article originally appeared in the June 2004 issue of Power & Motoryacht magazine.
This Memorial Day, remember those who were lost serving our country on the high seas in the U.S. Navy aboard PT Boats. Recently we were invited out for a ride on the only operational combat-veteran PT Boat, PT 305 in New Orleans.
