Stuart Stocker and the art of boatbuilding

Stuart Stocker’s love of boats and boating started when he was a teenager, launching his family’s 15-foot Woodard boat (with a 50 HP Mercury outboard) into the Connecticut River at Hoyt’s Landing.    


  1. A beautiful boat, Stuart! Hope you sell a million of 'em.

  2. Nice boats Stuart. That must be a fun job.
    Now if you can start a factory in the old Bryant building.
    Maybe you can use your old desk !!
    Springfield could become the boat building capital of Vermont.

    This Stuart Stocker is the Bryant Stu Stocker? Damn, you have aged well, Stu. No need to revive bad old Goldman memories though by entering that building.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
