I design and build boats, mostly for use in the local rivers but I've shipped boats all over the world.
I started with a 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.
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.
Gone are the days of the 'fragile wood boat'. Today, with modern composite techniques, these boats are easily built to be lighter and stronger than fiberglass and aluminum. Also, the yearly maintenance is gone. The wooden boat industry figured this out years ago, however, the 'less informed' will still yap about maintenance, weight and strength compared to a fiberglass boat. I've enjoyed fishing from many fiberglass boats, but they are nothing in comparison to these new wood composite boats. Stop by, I'm happy to show you why!
I build these boats to be extremely durable, with safety as my top priority. Every day I walk into my shop to build the best boat I can, durability over beauty, every time. All boats are USCG compliant.
I'm always looking to expand my designs and if you have an idea, run it by me.
