David Stimson grew up on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and learned boatbuilding while working in the local boatyards. During this time, he developed an eye for boat design from Merton Long, a retired catboat builder who became his friend and mentor. David's love of traditional boats was further inspired by the writings of John Gardner and Pete Culler in the 1970's and by WoodenBoat Magazine. He now lives in Boothbay, Maine, with his wife, Tamora and two teenage boys, Abraham and Nathaniel. He is a sailing charter captain during the summer, and designs and builds boats at Stimson Marine, Inc. in Boothbay.David Stimson grew up on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and learned boatbuilding while working in the local boatyards.
