I owned Kel-Tech Plastics for thirty-eight years servicing all of Westport Shipyard’s acrylic needs along with Delta, Christensen Yachts and Nordlund to name a few. We currently own a 64 Alaskan pilot house motor yacht and have owned a Tartan 3400 sailboat where we won second place in the South Sound Series in the cruising class one year. My passion for boats and the memories they create means everything to me – I even met my wife on Blake Island in 2002 when she was on her sailboat and I was on my 57 Angel pilot house motor yacht. I look forward to helping you find your special memories, too!
