My name is David A. Ince, and I established Dirty Dave's Marine in Orange County, California in 1974.  I started by doing fiberglass repair and gel coat refinishing of all types of trailerable boats.  As my business grew, I added engine/drive rebuilding, trailer repair and manufacture, custom rigging of new boats, and high-performance modifications to my list of offerings.

I have a college background in art, and began experimenting with the medium of cast paper sculpture in the mid-80's.  That lead to working with cold cast bronze sculpture.

I moved to the Inland Empire in 1989, and have a respectable customer base there.  I spend my time alternating between boat repair, custom auto repair and restoration, and creating new sculptures.

I feel my passion for the arts can be seen in not only my sculptures, but also in my daily work with boats and automobiles.
