Few business executives enter the high-risk arena of manufacturing sport-fishing boats saying, "This is the next great way I can make a billion bucks." Instead, boatbuilders tend to grow up boating and fishing. They are drawn into the game, cognizant of the risks, but focused on the art of boatbuilding as only lifetime watermen can be. Kevin Barker is such a guy, and his goal in founding Barker Boatworks this past summer is to deliver premium fishers. The first Barker is the Calibogue Bay, a coastal bay boat named for the area he fished and boated as a child. Barker approaches his task with all the art and passion a lifetime waterman could. And he further approaches his building process with the practice and technique of a NASCAR pitman.
