Dick Gibbs
1929-2009
American boat builder and designer best known for his partnership with Rod Macalpine-Downie. The Gibbs Boat Company was located near Toledo Ohio. (destroyed by fire 1n 1961 and then re-established in La Salle Michigan.) Besides a number of other boats, Gibbs was building a number of racing catamarans and it was probably at this time that the partnership began. Gibbs Boat Co. was purchased by MFG sometime around 1972 and Gibbs became the head of the SailMFG division. Gibbs also had his own sail loft where the sails for a number of the MFG models were made. After SailMFG was closed and sold in about 1979, Gibbs and Macalpine-Downie developed a number of boats for Chrysler Marine. The most successful of these was the BUCCANEER 18. The 2 worked together until MacAlpine-Downies untimely death in 1986.
