Dan Bochnovic , Technology Manager, Crowley's Yacht Yard
Much of the impressive carpentry and welded steel or aluminum improvements you see at Crowley's Yacht Yard
originated as abstract concepts from the mind of Dan Bochnovic
These include over 1000 feet of floating dock on the west and north banks (most recently the new in/out service dock), the deck in front of the store, and our new displays for Strictly Sail (which drew praise from other vendors there and will be making an encore appearance at Yachtapalooza).
also added the new remote controlled racked mast picking system in the rigging department.
In addition, Dan
is CYY's "go-to" guy for IT design and maintenance, and manages the docks and dockmasters.
From where did such a renaissance person come?
How did he
manage to end up at Crowley's?
With over thirty years in the recreational marine industry, Mr. Bochnovic started as a rigger in the days when rolling furlers were in their infancy.
Experienced in all types of installation and fiberglass repair, he also studied industrial design at Northern Illinois University and business at DeVry, from which he earned a degree in computer science.
spare time, Dan
enjoys woodworking and belongs to the Chicago Woodturners Club
loves doing carpentry jobs around his
house and has spent over fifteen years sailing Lakes Michigan and Huron and the North Channel.
