Charles McGill, a former Lone Star Boats engineer and executive moved to Houston in September 1956. An aluminum salesman who was a mutual contact put him in touch with the president of Consolidated General Products who was interested in getting into boat-building. McGill got the operation off the ground by designing several models and hiring another former Lone Star employee to operate the shop. After about a year, he left the company and got into business with Powell Awbrey of Anchortite, Inc. and formed Jayhawk Marine, Inc..
