“One of a Kind, One at a Time”




I am a creative boat builder located in southern New Hampshire.


Focusing on crafting small sailboats, canoes, and kayaks, and through the combination of modern techniques and exceptional materials, I produce watercraft that reflect traditional beauty through their lines and finish. Contact me to commission a build of a boat just for you. It is more affordable than you might think!


I have a wonderful boat-building program that hundreds of young camp and school folks have participated in.  Under my guidance, in 2014-2015, kids ranging from as young as 9 years to 16 years of age built a total of 58 boats! In 2016 we are currently scheduled to build 10 sailboats, 10 kayaks, and 16 canoes.

Happy Paddling and Fair Winds!
