NEW LONDON — Roger “Tiger” Hanson, 76, is being  remembered for operating a marine business in downtown New London that was known far and wide, but friends and family know that’s only part of the story.

He was also a world-class, high-speed boat racer; an award-winning mechanic who could fix any boat motor; an avid angler and outdoorsman; the captain of his own restored houseboat; and a skilled woodworker.
