One Place in Time tells a tale of growing up in an American shipyard in the middle of the twentieth century. Author Ginger Marshall Martus is the oldest surviving member of her family's shipyard team; now, she shares an insider's recollection of an era long past. Her father, Raymond E. Marshall, was the founder and owner of this well-known shipyard. From 1928 to 1968, the A&R Marshall, Inc. shipyard was one of the largest and most successful marine supply and service yards on the Atlantic seaboard. Martus recalls both the colorful boats and the even more colorful craftsmen who built and maintained them. Even so, this is not the story about yet another pretty boat, boat designer, or builder. Rather, it is the story of the people who serviced and took care of the crafts the designers and builders created for many of the legendary yachting personalities of the 1930s, '40s and '50s. This memoir is filled with nostalgic remembrances of a special place on a splendid time.
