On the cover: At Teak Isle in Ocoee, Florida, most CNC-cut parts are not ready for installation when they come off the router. That’s when the handwork of finish and assembly begins. Upward of 270 technicians create thousands of made-to-order components every week at this supplier for 200 boatbuilders. Story on page 18.
