Matthew Plunkett spent two years researching the history of the Boston Whaler company, from its humble origins in a garage in Braintree, Massachusetts, to its one-hundred-acre factory in Edgewater, Florida. In addition to combing through the written record of this company, Plunkett conducted more than three dozen interviews to pull together the Boston Whaler story. The book features never-before-seen photos and drawings to engage the reader and shed light on the history of this remarkable company. Plunkett resides in Valley Village, CA.Clint Crowell's first time boating was as a young boy with his grandfather - Dick Fisher, founder of Boston Whaler. He currently owns a 1988 Outrage 18 he uses with his family and friends for fishing at the Channel Islands off the coast of California. A highlight of these trips for Clint is listening to people at the ramp talk with pride and excitement about the boat's seaworthiness and the adventures in a Whaler that have helped shape their life.
