This is the comprehensive collection of all of the photography I’ve done for the website.

My son Harry just turned 7 years old and this kayak will be his. We greatly enjoy fishing and I am planning to deck this out with all sorts of fishing hardware. Harry helps out with the build here and there.
My daughter Maggie is 9 and we are building the Bolger Bobcat. It will be hers when it is complete.
It took me one winter (about 45 hours) to build the Kaholo Stand-up Paddleboard from Chesapeake Light Craft. It came out beautiful and I use it quite often. I showed it at the Wooden Boat Show in Mystic, CT and got many offers from folks to purchase it.
This was the first boat I built. I used exterior grade plywood and materials from my local Home Depot. The paint was Glidden. The only “marine-grade” material used was West Systems Epoxy and some beach sand for the no-slip floor.
Lyric was the first boat I purchased. I paid $700 for her and she was in tough shape. Even when she was new, she wasn’t much of a boat. This boat was more of a boat building classroom than a sailing vessel. I put 1000’s of hours and dollars into her and sold her for $900 2 years later.
1980 Stur-dee Cat “Felix”
Felix was my first “real” boat. She was 8′ shorter than Lyric, but she just felt like a quality built boat that was ready for anything. I had a hard time parting with her as did my family.
This is my dream boat and the boat I currently sail. Ever since I laid eyes on a Marshall Catboat, I have wanted to own one. I purchased her in October 2011 and she and my family have been inseparable ever since.
