Two Viking legends, with nearly a century of combined experience, recently took the new 72 demo out for a spin. Rudy Dalinger, (right) Viking's longest tenured employee, will celebrate 55 years with the company this September 2. Rudy began his career as a carpenter in 1964 and is now Custom Production Engineering Liaison. He's joined at the helm by Viking Senior Project Engineer Bill Gibbons. Bill has 43 years at Viking under his belt. "The speed and performance of the boat is just incredible," says Rudy. "It reminds me of just how far we've come over the years by focusing on building a better boat every day."
