Custom Wood Decks for Boats

There is a growing interest and desire for the Custom hand built boats of the past. And there are only a handful of experienced boat builders left in the country that know how to build wood deck boats. There are no special machines used in this process, it is all done with hand planners, body grinders, and sanders from start to finish. The following information is provided here for interested people wanting a wood deck installed on their boat. A deck that will set their boat apart from everyone else. You choose from many different domestic and exotic woods to be used on your deck.
