Spring / Summer 2014 Update
The c.1878 James Cross guide-boat sold less than 3 days after we listed it on the site.
This highly original boat went to a gentleman with many years rowing experience and
will join a very extensive collection. A link to its page can be found here.
* The 1950 Penn Yan Car Top model also sold at the end of last year to a family in
Pennsylvania. Its page can be found here. So, this leaves us with nothing
available for sale, however......
* Next up in the restoration queue is a c.1917 B.N. Morris sailing canoe. From the bilge
keels to the leeboards the degree of originality on this beautiful canoe is extraordinary. We purchased it earlier this year and it will be a Spring/Summer project.
* Big news! Weíre in the process of changing the location of our shop and warehouse.
Itís actually just up the road a bit from our old shop. The new location gives us quite
a bit more room for both production and storage and will allow for a build-out of
better quality finishing rooms and an office. Itíll be a lot of work but worth it in the end.
* Finally, our cedar buying trip to Quebec, New Brunswick and northern Maine was a
success. We have a limited quantity of clear 8-10' lumber that, when resawn, will yield near perfect quarter sawn faces in widths from 3-7". Please contact us if you are interested.
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.
