Back in November of 2016, the restoration team discussed how to do something special to honor and show respect to previous members from the Squire Shop teams racing past. After salvaging some of the original wood from the 1979-02 hull prior to its restoration, it was later reincorporated back in during October 2018.
The following people dedicated their lives to hull 1979-02 as owners, designers, builders, crew members, and various team members from the 1979-1981 seasons and the restoration team wanted to pay tribute to their sacrifices. Gary Laws (restoration Team Manager) created 26 individual recognition pieces for each identified member, complete with their actual signature (where applicable) and labels indicating each piece.
The following names below are who have been selected, as we truly appreciate those who paved the path for all of us to follow.
Note: There will be a detailed diagram to show where each piece is located in the hull at the bottom of this page soon, so keep checking back.
