Default It's official.... Coho Design brings the next Sea J to life

Some things are special. Memories of past adventures, your first boat, the moment you knew that the calling wasn't just a whisper, but an identity.

To me, officially having the name put on a boat is special. It marks a transition. A time and place where things get real. It's the line of demarcation where you push westward and everything else is in the past, and the future is fully in front of you.

I count myself as blessed to have become friends with Brad Baker of Coho Designs at the same time we were both starting our businesses. Brad came to my house and applied the graphics for my first offshore boat in the driveway... a 1992 Grady White 252 Sailfish with a couple old 200hp 2 strokes. It was a big deal for me to name a boat.

Since that time, he applied the name to my next Grady, has done countless work for our Oregon Tuna Classic event, created awesome Ironworker logos, and graphics for me, and best of all, become an important friend.

This last week, with a bum shoulder from an almost catastrophic accident, he managed to apply the name to the stern of the "new" Sea J. In the wind and rain, and with the help of the guys at Schooner Creek, he got it applied before she was splashed for the next phase. I couldn't be more happy.

Big thanks, as always, to Brad. He's not going to be doing this stuff forever, so if you have an idea, or want to get a boat wrapped, I suggest you get in line and get him your ideas. I know there are other quality individuals out there, but there's only one Brad Baker, and I am thankful for his work and friendship for many years. He makes stuff look good!

Classic contrasting colors and bold, simple design. Perfect.

Brad has helped me with four boats now doing the graphics and I always marvel at the talent he provides. Anytime some asks who did the work I'm always happy to point them to Brad.
