Story
Introduction

Richard Hood graduated with a BS from Brown University in 1979 and an MS from MIT in 1981.

In 1981 he entered the family marine business, The Ted Hood Companies, located in Marblehead, MA which later relocated to Portsmouth, RI in 1986. He was President of that business from 1991 until 1999 when it was sold to the investment group Bain Willard Companies, LP who had earlier bought a competitor, Hinckley Yachts.

In 2000 Richard left the company to launch a new career in freelance web development, video and graphic design.

In 2009, Anne Vandromme-Hood and Richard Hood formed a new company, Shorelink Publications, LLC, to create a select series of service guides (Yacht Insiders Guide) that uniquely offer recommendations for land-based attractions and activities, as well as suppliers and marine services.

Richard lives and works in Amherst, MA, and lives with his wife Carroll.
