Steve’s Yachting Experience and Credentials.
Steve has been known throughout the Australian maritime scene by the name Flipper Boughton. Most friends call him Flip. Having recently retired from the family construction company after handing over to my youngest son. Dinghy sailing 7yo, ocean racing MHYC 14, I started my career as an apprentice shipwright 51 years ago in Sydney aged 17 after it became obvious it was better to be working on boats than not going to school.
By age 19 I had started crayfishing (Aust’ Rocklobster) fishing the Abrolhos Islands WA, aged 21 reef fishing the Qld GBR and prawning the Qld Coast. In between times I was boat building and ocean racing. This has been my 69 year life with over 100,000NM of extended passages, deliveries and racing.
