“Basically, if it is made out of wood that’s what I do….”

Much of my boat repair work involves yacht owners. I travel all over Lee County, including Cape Coral and Naples to repair boats.  Many unique wood shop projects and boat repair have been created as a result of owners having their own ideas and the Shipwright Shop engineering, designing, building and installing.  With fifty some years of hands on boating experience, I am often able to offer suggestions in design, function, and efficiency.

Damaged wood is repaired. Worn out pieces are replaced.  Partial and complete renovations are done.  Water damage is repaired often by first isolating and stopping the leak.  Major structural repairs or new construction is done.  There is no way to list all the boat carpentry services and items repaired, created, or replaced. New and inspiring projects frequently present themselves.  Building small boats is a passion of mine and I’m always up for any type of boat building project.

All of it is custom work; I make my own templates, trim and pieces. Here’s a short list of services offered:

  • Veneering
  • Trim
  • Bulkheads
  • Rub Rails
  • Decking
  • Cabinetry
  • Cabin soles
  • Lockers/Storage
  • Load bearing support

Building small boats and tenders is a real joy for me.  I will usually have a new small boat building project going on somewhere in the shop.  Several home builders have come to the Shipwright Shop where advice flows quite freely.  Visit our Shop page for Boats for sale.  Small boats I’ve built to date:

  • Sailing/rowing prams
  • Dories
  • Pea Pod
  • Canoe
  • Kayak
  • Red Wing 18
  • Car topper
  • Motor skiffs
  • Dock side barge
