Walt Waters

I am sad to report the death of Walt Waters on 28th December.

Walt’s first notable role was as production engineer for the Bertram 31, but was of course the designer of the many powerboats credited to the Jim Wynne – Walt Waters partnership, as well as subsequently under his own name.
