Gage began his life-long love of sailing during his college years at his hometown University of Houston.
He spent summers sailing an 85 ft Alden schooner from Houston to New York. Upon graduation from college, he served in the U.S. Navy as a line officer, completing his duty in Viet Nam in 1971.
Shortly after release from naval service he moved to Florida and began a career in yacht brokerage. Always appreciating classic lines and fine performance of traditional sailing vessels, and admiring well-executed joinery in any vessel, he moved comfortably to custom residential construction, specializing in well-executed high-end finishes in wood.
Beautiful boats, and sailing them proficiently always in his heart, he returned to yacht brokerage professionally in 19¬91.
