Tinh ‘Tee’ Nguyen, owner of 360 Degree Yacht Refinishing in Ft. Lauderdale, died late last year of cancer. He was 43.

Friend Richard Rhodes is now general manager of the company and said Nguyen excelled in carpentry work on yachts and was a fiberglass painter and bottom specialist.

“He saw the need to do more than other people,” Rhodes said.

Originally from Vietnam, Nguyen grew the company to three locations, including Universal Marine in Ft. Lauderdale. Currently the main operations are located in Lauderdale Marine Center with a wood shop and spray booth on Southwest Second Street in Ft. Lauderdale.

He is survived by his wife and four children.
