Before coming to Power & Motoryacht magazine in 1988, Capt. Bill Pike served on a variety of ships, offshore oilfield vessels and oceangoing tugs. Prior to that he worked as a newspaper reporter. During his 33 years as a marine journalist, Bill has sea-trialed or cruised thousands of boats. He is a graduate of the Great Lakes Maritime Academy, a combat veteran of the Vietnam War and a serial owner of numerous vessels, the latest a restored 1988 Cape Dory 28 Flybridge, the Betty Jane II. If you see Bill on the docks, make sure to say hi.
