|Mike Malik's 'Lil Rascal' on Cover|
This book tells the historic tales of the four-generation Mayea family, retracing their wooden boat building career from the early 1900s to today. For the first time this fully illustrated book reveals never before seen pictures and recounts the Mayea's involvement with renowned boat builders like John L. Hacker and Joseph Pouliot, as well as airplane designers such as, Alfred Verville and the Wright brothers.A review of various news archives and boat owner discussion threads suggests that Malik has an obsession with Mayea built Mays Craft mahogany boats. The Lil' Rascal is apparently one of the more special of Malik's Mayea built boats. In addition to being featured on the cover of this Mayea history book, it's also featured in a photo gallery on Mayea's website. Another Mayea built boat, Temptation, is the crown in Malik's obsession collection. Ironcially another Mays Craft boat reportedly owned by Malik is the Obssession.
