Fisher BSc. MRINA - the Designer
After a youth messing
around in all sorts of boats on the Thames, I gained my degree - a BSc
(Bachelor of Science) in Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding from
Newcastle University in 1974.
Straight after University l
worked in the design office of McGruer & Co. Scotland for 4 years -
famous for high performance racing /cruising yachts beautifully crafted
in wood (cold moulded as well as conventional clinker and carvel). l
then became Technical Manager at D.M. Russell Marine - formerly Jas. A.
Silvers yard just up the road at Rosneath, for 5 years - famous for
their motor yachts - this period found me sailing/cruising in all sorts
of craft around the coast of the UK and regular racing in everything
from Dragons to the IOR fleet on the Clyde.
