Why It All Started?

It all started with a French Editor from Sailing Magazine, and our private unused dock. Back in 2011, I (Davis Helsby) was living on New River in Fort Lauderdale, when a French editor knocked on my door asking if we’d be willing to rent our unused dock to him on a month by month basis. It was a win-win. He had a very safe and convenient place to store his sailboat, and we earned rental income to offset our living expenses. I realized that there was demand from both private dock owners and boat owners to connect, and there had to be a better way of connecting them.

As a result, Connecthedocks™ was born.
