Our History / about the founders
The founders are both are qualified to advanced university level and have long-serving backgrounds in engineering and humanities. This allows a blend of 'numbers' and 'letters' with the focus being on the practical, simple and efficient ways of creating a boating resource.
The family's history in boating goes back over 80 years, from a sea-scouts saling cutter to the ownership in the '1930s' of the now-historic classic Mahaki B-class schooner (sail number B8), built by Arthur Logan in 1895 in Auckland, New Zealand (and still sailing). First sailing was self-taught at age seven in a ten foot clinker dinghy with a simple gunter rig, leading to a self-build by one of the founders, at age 15, of a Moth. Later on windsurfing became the draw and then on to modest doses of cruising.
