Meet Carolina Boatbuilder Paul Mann
Paul Mann shares his knowledge on all things boatbuilding, from classic methods to hull shape to new materials. Find out what it takes to build a classic Carolina-style sportfishing boat. At just 25 years old, Paul Mann splashed his first custom sportfish, using the skills and know-how he picked up from some of the best-known Carolina boatbuilders of the day. That first boat, the Madd Hatter, was Paul’s dream boat and he fished it as a charter captain. But once people saw the boat leading the pack through the treacherous inlets, interest grew. He began to focus on boatbuilding full time and 30-something years later. Thirty-plus years later, Paul has decided it’s time to hang up his sanding block. He sits down with us to share some of his secrets and explain what makes a great hull.
