The family moved to Florida in 1997 and continued boating in an 18x8-foot SeArk center console aluminum boat all along the St. Johns river and surrounding flats. While in high school, Hammond worked at West Marine, selling boat equipment and accessories and spending his time talking about what he loved, boating and fishing.
