Boat building began for W. D. “Bill” Schock at age thirteen when he built a Skimmer in the garage of his family's Hollywood home. After serving as a crew chief in WWII, Bill moved into a small beach house in Newport Beach and set up shop. He repaired the rental fleet at a local amusement park, among other odd jobs, and started building a cold-molded wooden International 14 for himself. Before he finished it, another I-14 sailor discovered the boat and talked Bill into selling it. W. D. Schock Boat Building and Repair was in business.
