NMEA honors the late Charles Husick

The National Marine Electronics Association celebrated the life of Charles "Chuck" Husick, who died Sept. 13, with the posthumous gift of its Lifetime Achievement Award.

The award was presented to Husick's son and grandson at the Oct. 2 banquet capping the NMEA's 2010 International Marine Electronics Conference & Expo in Seattle. The Lifetime Achievement Award honors remarkable people who have "improved the public good through the field of marine electronics."

The award is not presented annually.

Husick, 77, formerly headed Chris-Craft Boat Co. and Konel Marine Electronics. He also was a board member of the Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services and was a frequent contributor to numerous marine magazines.

He was the first industry veteran named to the BoatU.S. National Advisory Council and he held a 100-ton Coast Guard Master's License, the NMEA said.

In presenting the award to Husick's son, Brad, and grandson Graham, association president David Hayden said, "All of us who knew Chuck will miss him very much. He was an important part of this industry and a valuable supporter of boating safety. His loss will be felt by the boating public, as well as by all of us, for many years to come."
