I may have missed other posts relating to future plans for B&B Yacht Design, but I noticed this entry from Graham on another thread and thought that it deserved it's own thread.
After the completion of the cat we had to decide where the company was going. I could have carried on with Carla doing as much as we could but slowly grinding the business into the ground as we aged out. We had long recognized how good Alan was and decided to offer him a partnership. Earlier this year we formed B&B Yacht Design inc. with Carla, Alan, Beth and I as equal partners. As Carla and I age out they will take over and eventually inherit the whole business.
We kept Nat on to help out and David is doing most of the machining giving Alan and I more time to create. I see B&B growing a lot more in the future. It gives me a lot of satisfaction to know that the business will live on and that the builders who had enough faith to build our designs will know that they will continue to have support and keep up the value of their boats.
I want to applaud Graham and Carla, first for their commitment and innovation to boat design and building, and second for their foresight and good fortune in bringing Alan and Beth into the business. I also want to thank and congratulate Alan and Beth for keeping this wonderful enterprise alive.
