What’s New

I am pleased to announce that D. N. Hylan & Associates Inc. has become Hylan & Brown – Boatbuilders. It was in our winter 2012 newsletter that Doug announced that he had brought me on as partner. Since that time my responsibilities as well as my ownership of the company have grown to the point that Doug thought we ought to put my name on the shingle too. I’m honored to be associated with all the great work that Doug and this shop have turned out over the past 20 years. I look forward to continuing and building upon the great reputation for quality, honesty and creativity that Doug has worked so hard to build.  –Ellery Brown

On the Drawing Board

In “Junior’s” shop we built the latest of our “hat” designs. Starting with Doug’s Top Hat design, first built in 2002 followed by the Bowler design first built in 2013, we call this one “Gatsby” (a somewhat obscure hat also known as a newsboy cap).
