this fine yacht.
My qualifications are as follow: I served a CABINET MAKER apprentiship at WestHartford Stair and Cabinet in West Hartford Connecticut from 1971 to 1973.
In 1979 I joined Pratt & Withney Aircraft in East Hartford Connecticut and was enrolled in their apprentiship progam and graduated as TOOL AND DIE maker.
