Humble Beginnings Of Blue Wave Boats…
This day started out like any other, helping around the house, playing with friends and even getting into a little bit of trouble, but at around 4 pm this day in 1967, a legacy began…
Roger Parks, your average 14 year-old saw his dad coming home from work and noticed he was carrying the materials that he had been waiting for! Finally, his childhood dream was becoming a reality, a small wooden fishing boat made with his own two hands.
Ever since he could remember, he wanted to build boats, just like his dad. In this small town in Arkansas, the local boat plant was just about the only livelihood. In fact, it was quite a shock on a day when at age 10 or so, Roger realized that there were people that did not make their living building boats. That was fine for them, but not for Roger! With those final pieces of scrap materials, enthusiasm and determination, Roger’s career as a boat builder and the foundation for Blue Wave Boats had begun.
The Challenge Begins…
Roger sat down with a homemade drawing board and began to pour through detailed information. He had been particularly fascinated by customer needs and special requests, and thank goodness, never threw anything away! It did not take long to realize that he had the perfect resource to establish the parameters for his new designs and to create a unique boat that provided what people really wanted and needed.
The Moment Of Truth
On December 19th, 1992 Roger and Pam loaded up there one and only Blue Wave 189 Classic and headed for a small dealership in Rosenberg, Texas. The dealer took delivery of this special package in preparation for the debut of the new line at the Houston Boat show. Just a few days later the Parks’ were headed back home with a check in hand and now needed to build 2 more Bluewave boats for other dealers to take to their upcoming shows.
