Restoration

A restoration on a wooden boat is repairing and replacing everything necessary to bring the boat up to new condition, strength, and finish. The type and extent of restorations can vary a great deal.

  • Some people prefer to do a complete restoration bringing the boat back to the original condition using traditional materials.
  • Others like to modify the design and use more contemporary materials.
  • Depending on the size and extent of the project the restoration can take anywhere from a month to a few years.
  • Many boats I have restored have been done in stages over a number of years allowing the owners to use the boat in the summer

Current Projects

Winter 2005 - Spring 2007

Allegro, a 43' Alden Schooner, built in 1929, has had some restoration work performed these past 2 seasons at Crowley's Yacht Yard in Chicago. We replaced the forefoot, a portion of the keel, frames, planking and portions of the stern section.

While replacing planks in the bow (2005/2006), we found the forefoot had a lot of rot and needed to be replaced.
