Rockport Marine launched a new blog that is chronicling the restoration of several yachts throughout 2012.

The blog, “No Greater Passion for the Craft,” is online and is authored by yacht design and construction management staff on site. The technical content is provided in layman's terms so that boating enthusiasts worldwide can learn how the most advanced marine construction techniques are being incorporated into the restoration of classic yachts.

“We're excited to discover a new way to connect with customers, industry and the wooden boat community,” Rockport Marine president Taylor Allen said in a statement. “With the availability of continuously improving new technologies we're able to restore yachts with even greater integrity than ever before.”

Rockport is inviting questions from wooden-boat enthusiasts about modern design and construction methodology. The professionals in Rockport’s design office and in the boat shop will offer their experience and insight through the blog. Suggestions for content can be offered through the blog, via the Facebook page, or through e-mail at info@rockportmarine.com.
