We expect to spend the remainder of this year helping our clients build their
collections and complete the majority of the contract restorations now in the queue. As a
consequence, we won’t have any of our own units finished and available for sale. Here
are some of the more interesting craft now in the shop:
- H. Dwight Grants’ no. 6 guide-boat from 1893
- c.1910 William McCaffery guide-boat
- c.1900 Keuka Lake duck boat
- c.1895 J.H. Rushton rowing skiff
- 1923 Old Town sailing canoe with retractable centerboard
- c. 1917 B.N. Morris Sailing canoe
That said, if you have a project that involves relatively minor repair please or a cosmetic upgrade give us a call. Smaller jobs can always be worked into the schedule.
* Late last year we acquired a c.1903 B.N. Morris. This Model A, Type 1 is in fantastic original condition and a real beauty - mahogany decks, seats and thwarts with closed gunwales. As noted above, it is probably a project for next year unless someone has to have it, in which case we should talk.
* We still have some white cedar on hand and can make it available for sale. During the last hunt we reviewed about 1,400 boards and cants ultimately purchasing 21 of them. This clear lumber, when reasawn, will yield near perfect quarter sawn faces ranging from 3-7" wide in lengths of 8-10'. If you are involved in a restoration or new build that demands historically accurate materials please get in touch.
All of the canoes and boats that we've restored and listed previously on the website
can be found here.
For photos of many (but by no means all) of the craft that never made it to the site, please click here to view The Rogues Gallery. We'd like to think it's some interesting stuff.
