If you donít find what youíre looking for in the above list and it can be made of wood, please give me a call. Due to my experience as a boat builder I have taken on very diverse projects from working with large timbers while laying traditional wooden keels for yachts right through to the very fine detail cabinet making used in narrow boat interiors and yachts. I can undertake most things if they are made of wood. My expertise is in the finer detail items.

I have access to a good range of trusted experts that I can work closely with during any project. These include shell builders, engineers, gas fitters, plumbers, sign writers and canal arts craftsmen so that any job can be completed.

For smaller jobs I will normally estimate the cost following a visit to the boat, agree a timescale to do the work, complete the work and then submit an invoice for payment once you are happy with the finished job.

For larger, longer jobs I will agree a schedule and payment scheme before work commences.
