Sea Knight Builder Legacy Continues

For Rory Hamilton, building a boat is more than building a great boat or having one to enjoy. It’s more about re-creating memories from his childhood and being able to share those with his family.

Rory’s grandfather, John Hargenrader, built a Glen-L Sea Knight in 1965. Because of his fond memories of his grandfather’s boat, Rory has replicated it. Rory has shared  what a privilege it was to follow in his grandpa’s footsteps and even use the same tools he used.

The Sea Knight design features a small cabin which Rory eliminated as did his grandfather. See more photos of Rory’s boat in his Gallery here.  Kudos to an excellent job on the boat and interview to Rory. And good for you for carrying on your grandpa’s legacy!

Enjoy the video interview of Rory!
