Craftsman Services


Do you need a custom pattern made for your boat? A particular part that you really need or want but have no idea how to make?

Whether it’s an end cap to a bulwark, a watch seat or belaying pins for your Bristol Channel Cutter, our custom craftsmanship can exceed your expectations.

If you have an idea, I’m sure we can accommodate your vision.

Freehand Steering Systems


We specialize in creating “Windvane” freehand steering systems for sailboats. If you are buying or building a new yacht on which you intend to fit a wind vane steering gear then consider our services to ensure the best quality and craftsmanship for your vessel.

Fine Wood Working


Working as a boat carpenter most of my life and owning two vessels, I felt the need to branch out into Art Furniture. Whether it’s tables, lathe work or other ornamental features for your yacht, I can create a showpiece you can be proud to display.

Radio Controlled Sailboats

Radio controlled sailboats

Owning a scale-replica model of your boat to show off in your home or office reception room is every boat-lovers dream. I’m up to building your new radio-controlled sailboat, whether it’s a full model or half hull, my award-winning craftsmanship will do your boat justice.
