In the very early days of starting this website, when your webmaster basically did not have a clue, the following individuals were particularly helpful. My sincere apologies to those I have overlooked. Since those early days many others have contributed, especially present and former Dolphin owners. There are too many to list. A special thanks to Stan Secora who has been a technical advisor for 30 years, and who told me Marionette would be a good boat to buy.
