Taylor Allen began building boats as a teenager in Rockport Marine when the yard still belonged to his father, Luke Allen. Taylor became the president of Rockport Marine in 1980 and has grown the company into an internationally renowned wooden boat yard. Specializing in new construction, restoration, and design work, RMI has built a wide variety of boats, from traditional plank-on-frame to modern wood-composite vessels.
Scott Wilmoth graduated from IYRS’ School of Boatbuilding & Restoration, Class of 2008, and began employment at Rockport Marine shortly thereafter. He has worked at RMI ever since as a carpenter on the teams for BOLERO, TRADE WIND, ADVENTURESS, and most recently CARY ALI. When he is not working on boats or his house, he can be found canoeing the lakes of northern Maine.
