Connecticut lost a respected boatbuilder when Richard Thomas "Rick" Persson died Feb. 20 at Yale-New Haven Hospital after falling ill at home the preceding week. He was 55.

From his youth, Persson worked at the family boatbuilding business in Old Saybrook - his father's Seth Persson Boat Builders - and for the last 14 years at Cove Landing Marina in Hamburg, a hamlet on the Connecticut River.

He developed a reputation for fine craftsmanship in the construction and restoration of wooden boats, a craft he learned from his father.
