Dale spent a number of years at several boatyards perfecting his craft and standards before coming to Ventura Harbor in 1982 when he started his own business at Ventura Quay Boatworks.  He stayed on with Ventura Harbor Boatyard when it was purchased in 1986, becoming a partner and owner in 1996.  Dale is an integral component in the growth of the business.  Dale’s painting as well as his expert fiberglass fabrication and repair services are widely known for the quality and attention to detail he demands.  Some of his customers come from as far north as Oregon and south as San Diego specifically for his service.
