Days of building boats and racing

By Brenda Locklear

Dry-docked, a large saltwater craft sits in the front yard of Richmond Kennedy’s Lake Panasoffkee home, lending a hint to his interests.
Inside the house, a wall lined with bookcases is filled with trophies and a collection of aging black and white photographs that give a visual history of his career in speed boat racing.
Former owner of two companies, Kennedy Craft, Inc. and Panacraft, Inc., Kennedy is a winning boat designer and speed racer. Now 80, he’s still fishing, still quick with a joke and unassuming about what he’s achieved.
