Otis bought the boat yard neighboring his fathers land in April 1921 for $5,000.
He was a well known as a boat builder and engine repairer. After the hurricane in 1938 which caused the ocean to flood the boat yard and the house, he sold the boat yard. The house was moved to a new site up the road. After selling the boat yard, Otis worked on propellers in his workshop.
Here are some of the boats built by Otis.
