As custom boat builders, our craftsmen are continually challenged to hone and expand their skills. These skill sets carry over into our repair and refit work. Whether building a custom entertainment center or replanking a traditional wooden boat, our woodworkers excel. ELECTRICAL Our ABYC certified marine electricians expertly handle tasks from minor troubleshooting to complete system designs. Whether you have a center console fishing machine that has to keep the electronics going while you fish, or a cruising trawler that must be engineered so that you can live on the hook without needing the generator 24/7, we can help. FIBERGLASS & COMPOSITES Working with composites has become increasing complex. The ability to identify and work with a wide range of resins, core materials, and fabrics is essential to executing proper repairs. Our composites technicians have years of experience and stay current with online classes and onsite training with outside consultants.

We specialize in alignments, vibration reduction, and engine sound mitigation. A smoother quieter boat is one that you will use and enjoy more. PAINT & VARNISH Whether brushing on a flawless coat of gloss varnish, or spray painting your hull with an AwlGrip® finish, we are methodical in our preparation work and obsessive about the quality of the finish.
