Jean-Christophe Worth


Being born in Los Angeles, CA; I’ve been fortunate to be able to spend most of time by the water. Growing up, I enjoyed most of every weekend on the water, whether on a boat or by the beach, it’s safe to say that I was developing a deep connection with the ocean at a young age. One of my first memories by the sea was when I was 8 years old; I would spend hours surfing with my father. After we surfed all the energy out of us, we always tried to get home before night fall, but that was always a fun challenge.

Later on in my high school years, I started working as a Deckhand for a local sport fishing boat in Marina Del Rey, CA.

After graduating high school, I moved to Humboldt County and earned my bachelor’s degree in Geography and French from Humboldt State University.

With such a diverse fauna and flora on the Northern California coast, my passion for all things related with the ocean motivated me to continue my career in the maritime industry. For 5 years, I worked with Wing Inflatable on the production line manufacturing inflatable boats for the Coast-Guard, Navy, and other international defense contracts. With my keen attention to detail, and love for what I do, it tremendously helped me become the most awarded Boat manufacturer 5 years running. After recently relocating to San Diego, I am excited to continue working with boats, and today, I am happy to use my years of experience and attention to detail in the Maritime industry to the San Diego Boating scene.

Let’s Go Boating!

Andy Paluczak


While I’m the newest addition to the Dinghy Doctor Team, I am no stranger when it comes to boats. I’ve been an avid fisherman my entire life and have a passion for anything that has to do with being on or around water. Having owned my own boat dealership, I understand the sales process and the importance of communication and follow through and plan to bring a high level of customer service to my position here at the Dinghy Doctor. I also run a large youth fishing outreach program and in my spare time my wife and I enjoy watching our two sons participate in high school sports.  In the market for a dinghy or outboard motor, please contact me at: Andy@dinghydr.com
