Ah, but Dennis paid his dues working for Dubuque Boat Works. The "mosquito fleet" he designed in the sixties was not in the class of the Julia Belle Swain or the Twilight. I refer to Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn and their colleagues. All are good boats. All have made money. None has been in any trouble, but still they do not compare esthetically with his Border Star and his last two boats.
