48° NORTH, JANUARY 2011 PAGE 34


Northwest after a lifetime of sailing. From age 7 and his El Toro to his latest sailing dream Allure, a Kalic 40. After graduating from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Dennis taught secondary school science and coached before turning his attentions back to boats. Dennis established a marine electrical and systems installation business in Portland, Oregon. This business opened many doors in the marine field for Dennis including commissioning, surveying and deliveries as well as the base marine electrical company. While in Portland, Dennis continued his racing on his Morgan 30. In 2006, Dennis felt the call to go cruising. After two years in the Sea of Cortez, Dennis and Beverly had to make a decision that it was time to go back to work. Please stop by the UK Sailmakers booth, W29 at the 2011 Seattle Boat Show to discuss your plans.
