John grew up in Dennis not far from Sesuit Harbor where he developed a passion for boating and fishing. He graduated from Cape Cod Regional Technical High School in 1984 completing one year in marine mechanics and three years in auto body repairs. Shortly after graduating, John obtained his Massachusetts Appraisers License and continued working for a large dealership in Hyannis, gaining knowledge in all aspects of vehicle repair and refinishing. During that time he became friends with a well known boat builder in Mashpee and decided to work with him on nights and weekends honing his skills in general boat building, wood work and structural repairs. In 1998 he began working for an appraisal company where he appraised auto insurance claims for three years. He then took a position as manager of an auto body repair shop. In 2005 John and his wife Diane purchased Enterprise Auto Body in Yarmouthport and together they owned and operated it until 2021. In 2018 John obtained his OUPV Captain’s License to be able to do fly fishing Charters in his spare time. The last few years in business, John found himself most enjoying repairing and refinishing outboard motors and boats. Having rekindled his youthful passion for boat work, he made the decision to sell the shop and work full time in the marine industry. When not working you can find John enjoying time with his wife, three children and 2 grandchildren on our beautiful local flats, fly fishing on his boat.
