Who is Capt. Art?

Father of 3 beautiful girls, he lived most of his life in New-Brunswick, Canada in a small fisherman village called Cocagne. With his natural charismatic leadership, he became a very successfull businessman and was greatly involved in the community and politically. However, his great passion became building fiberglass boats and did so for many years. Even though happy with his life, he always dream about living on a boat in the sun saying that he wanted to become a professional beach bum.

One day, from his waterfront house, he noticed a big sail boat stuck on Cocagne island sand bar and quickly, he went over to help. To his surprise, he met a Caribbean crew, more particularly the Hazel brothers from Bequia who was sailing in the region for the first time. Capt. Art became friends with them, invited them at his house and showed them around. Eventually, for the first time, 30 years ago, he flew to visit his Bequian friends. From then on, Bequia became Capt. Art dream island. Now, he knew exactly where he would go when ready to leave with his boat. Bequia became his dream destination! In the meantime, at every possible opportunities, he flew to Bequia to visit his friends, at that point his Bequian family! He became known by all the locals in Bequia and was very liked.

In 1994, Jonalisa, named after his 3 daughters, Jolyne, Nathalie and Lisa, was lauched in Cocagne. This has been the last boat designed and constructed by Capt. Art. This spacious trawler was the perfect liveaboard boat designed for the Caribbean. Capt. Art dream was finally coming true! He left in December of that same year, in the cold Atlantic weather, breaking ice in Cocagne Bay for Bequia. From the warf, his family and friends, with mix feelings of joy to finally see Capt. Art attaining his dream and sadness of not knowing when they would see him again, were waving at him until he was far away in the horizon. 

The weather was icelly cold and the crew had to keep breaking the ice which was forming on the boat until finally reaching warmer weather several days later. In South Carolina, so excited to finally feel the heat, Capt. Art wrip his T. Shirt off!! Since, he has been enjoying being bare chest..an habit that irritates his long time girlfriend Rachel.
