I design and build boats, mostly for use in the local rivers but I've shipped boats all over the world.
I started with subpar kit almost 25 years ago. I then worked from scratch to produce my own design and after many years of testing, I've developed a drift boat style that is very simple and strong. Customers bring their unfinished kits to me, frustrated and overwhelmed. Our end results are a beautiful day on the river!
My specialty is mostly river designs like the popular Drift Boat and the recently popular Skiff. There are several variations available in both models, from genuine stripped hulls to plywood to full out composite. In each model, there are endless options to set the boat up to suit your needs.
I build these boats to be extremely durable, with safety as my top priority. There are other designs/builders out there that also make a nice boat, I'm not comparing or competing. I admire them all. Every day I walk into my shop to build the best boat I can, durability over beauty, every time. I test my boats very hard, I try to find the weakness then push it until it fails. We've intentionally side drifted hidden stumps, pinned an oar, and trailer/bank dropped these boats to make certain your safety remains top priority. Seriously, I beat the hell out of mine, I don't feel bad when I client does the same!
I'm always looking to expand my designs and if you have an idea, run it by me. Build times obviously vary but usually range from 30-90 days for skiffs and drifters.
