Proud of East Texas: Tim Taylor

By Joan Hallmark

Tim Taylor races boats for the excitement, to keep in shape, and more often than not to help others. He's won The Neches Wilderness Run" for the past three years. But as much as Taylor loves racing, he's even more passionate about building boats.

A boat Taylor gave to the East Texas Cattle Baron's Auction for cancer, has been gifted to the "Lance Armstrong Foundation for Cancer Research". He's building a new boat for this year's Cattle Baron's event as well.

While Taylor's boats are often used for racing , with some customers even using the beautiful boats to decorate homes and offices, Taylor says their best use is to see the countryside while floating lazily down East Texas rivers.
