“Norman Bouchard also built boats about that time. [the 1950s] He had come to town with the CCC and had married a local girl. He got a job in the boatyard during the war, and he picked up how to build boats. After the war boom was done, he started building on his own, and he turned out some fairly good ones. They were mostly lobster boats, but there were some pleasure boats too.” - “Ralph Stanley : Tales of a Maine Boatbuilder” by Craig S. Milner and Ralph W. Stanley, published by Down East Books, Camden, Maine 2004, p. 60.
