What’s New

In the Shop

There is lots of news on our In the Shop page, including an Elco 50 restoration, a new design we call Gatsby, a bare hull to our Marsh Hen design, and lots of custom doors that we made as a subcontractor to Brooklin Boat Yard.

On the Drawing Board

In “Junior’s” shop we’ll begin construction of the latest of our “hat” designs. Starting with Doug’s Top Hat design, first built in 2002 followed by the Bowler design first built in 2013, we will call this one “Gatsby” (a somewhat obscure hat also known as a newsboy cap).
