     George H. Cuthbertson, the first C in C&C Yachts, my Dad, was not mechanically inclined at all. I never knew him to fix anything mechanical ever, yet he was a mechanical engineer.    Just after the war, all war veterans were offered free education, this caused a surge in students at the U of T and the University converted a munitions factory in Ajax for the  S.P.S.  G.H.C. was there for his first two years of his degree with some of those veterans.
