Shawn Deweese & Chris Nolan met while attending the United States Coast Guard Academy & quickly developed a lasting friendship. Both separated from the Coast Guard in 2015 to pursue their dream of owning a boat & making a career out of it; one that gives way to creativity, flexibility, travel, meeting new people and having the ocean only feet below them as Often. As. Freaking. Possible. Simple enough, right?
Well, just a little less than 3 years later, that dream is a reality. The s/v August Maverick was purchased in early 2018 & her yard period started soon thereafter. She's got a lot of character & the Becket Benders team is working tirelessly to make some improvements & add some modern & colorful flair.
