News Stories.

A brief history of California Marine.

California Marine was founded in 1968, and today is still a family owned 
and operated business.

Where the Boating Blood Came From.

James Hutchison, the father of the owner of California Marine, David 
Hutchison, was the first to build a hydro-plane on the West Coast of Canada.

James designed, built and raced hydro-planes from 1952 to 1980. His love of 
the sport never failed him, and when his son, David, came to him asking for 
help to build the Catalina series of ski-boats, he obliged.

James worked for California Marine until he was 80 years old, building many 
georgeous boats such as the one on the front page of this site, from the 
ground up. He custom built the engines, trailers, and all of the internal 
workings of each and every boat. 

Most of the Catalina boats were water tested for our customers on 
near-by Whatcom lake in Bellingham, Washington. At this lake, James 
and son David, would carefully test and tune the boats to get the maximum 
performance out of each one.

James Hutchison was inducted into the British Columbia Sports Hall of 
Fame in 1984 for his accomplishments in hydro-plane racing. He will be 
long remembered as a legend of his sport, and the Catalina series of boats 
and California Marine name will forever be a reminder and model of his 
lifestyle and accomplishments.
