Sailing World magazine's Editor Dave Reed just published this report on the new J/112E that Sailing World named the 2017 Crossover of the Year.
Founded in New Rochelle in 1935 by Howard and Jacqueline McMichael, the company provided services to the boating public, including fuel and provisioning. Many of their customers were from nearby Larchmont Yacht Club. They built the business over the following years believing that "providing good service in a friendly manner is the key to success".
In 1938, Howard and Jacqueline leased property on the east basin of Mamaroneck Harbor from the Orienta Yacht Club. The business continued to grow and service the needs of sailors, fishermen and recreational boaters of Western Long Island Sound. During the war years, Howard worked in a defense plant at night, ran the boat business during the day, and was also a foreman at a yard in Rye building tugs for the Navy.
