Dan Parker, a recent graduate from the Louisiana Center for the Blind, designed and built a boat.

Dan Parker, a former student at the Louisiana Center for the Blind, designed and built a boat with his own hands.

“I built and designed the entire thing in six months,” Parker said.

Parker had spent his life prior to this building racecar and motorcycle frames, but had never before attempted to build something like this, he said.
