Raised in a boating family, owners of McChesney Boat Works, his recreational boating experience includes operation and maintenance of many different boats of all sizes, both power and sail.

He founded Blue Water Yachts in 1988. shortly thereafter he sold his first boat to Cheryl, the rest is history, as Jimmy Buffet says "Some people say there is a Woman to Blame, but I know it's my own .... fault".  Todd and Cheryl enjoy sailing (both racing and cruising) and going to dog shows with their two Papillions, which are great boat dogs.
