  • Roger Moorman '39

    Sailor, Merchant Marine, Inventor of the Mobjack

    Roger Moorman is revered in the international sailing community as a fiberglass pioneer who produced some of the nation’s first GRP sailboat hulls in the 1950s. Following his tour of duty as a second officer and Chief Gunnery officer in WWII, Roger pursued his desire to produce a superior performing boat. He designed wooden sailboats (Windmill, Raven) and ultimately designed and built the Mobjack, a 17-foot planing hull boat that was self-rescuing. The boat was double-hulled (with his singular, superior fiberglass design), unsinkable and the first self-bailing vessel. Even with these features, the Mobjack weighed nearly four hundred pounds less than other boats of similar size. This was revolutionary and made it a fast boat with superior safety attributes. Roger held patents in both England and Canada. His company, Mobjack Manufacturing, operated in the 1950s, 60s and 70s and produced over 900 Mobjacks. Moorman sold his company to Browning Arms Company in 1965. He also co-designed the Nomad and the Skipjack.
    Roger attended the US Naval Academy, where he lettered in gymnastics. Though sailing was always his passion, as a Seahorse he also played football and baseball, and he was a student photographer. He died in 2012 at the age of 90.

    Ward “Buck” Scull is President of Virginia Transfer and Storage, a company that was founded in 1895 by his grandfather.

Not only did he help his employee, but he went a step further and launched a campaign to limit the practice of payday loans. He started from scratch, learning how the legislative process works and becoming an increasingly effective advocate. After several years of his work, an APR cap of 36% was legislated. In other, quiet good works, Ward partnered with an archaeology professor from William & Mary to purchase Big Island, at the mouth of the York River, preserving it as a snapshot in time of the history of the men and women of the Guinea Marshes. In 2008, Ward was named Daily Press Citizen-of-the-Year in recognition of his commitment to a worthy cause and personal effort to improve the lives of others. The Virginia General Assembly would go on to commend him in a public resolution of respect for his hard work and community involvement.

    He graduated from Duke University and University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business.

  • Peter Morris Smith Sr. ’58

    In 1963, Pete Smith was a surfing fanatic at a time when the sport was still merely a curiosity. Born and raised in VA Beach, he and a partner had the entrepreneurial foresight to open Smith and Holland Surf Shop on 22nd Street. They were pioneers in the industry. As young businessmen they had little idea that the surfing scene would become the multi-million dollar sensation that it did. Smith quickly became a tourist favorite, and “Pete Smith’s Surf Shop” t-shirts were a hot commodity. He became “the voice” of East Coast surfing, announcing at events up and down the boardwalk. His special style and achievements, in both the sport and the business, were central to the transformation of Virginia Beach into a major east coast surfing mecca. He played a huge role in relocating a major surfing contest from NY to VA Beach, a move that resulted in the longest continuous-running surfing event in the US and the second longest in the world.
    In 1996, Pete Smith was inducted into the Greg Noll East Coast Surf Legends Hall of Fame. He remains an iconic figure in East Coast surfing, and surf shops along the Mid-Atlantic Coast still bear his name. In a 2014 Virginian-Pilot article, Lee Tolliver wrote that Pete Smith is “an ambassador for all that is good about the sport” of surfing.
    To this day, the surfboard on which Smith learned to surf hangs over the exit of Freedom Surf Shop on Laskin Road.
