Boothbay Harbor Shipyard

A wooden boat built and maintained with high quality materials will outlast boats of other construction.  Rot is unlikely to occur in a boat that is built with rot resistant wood.  By eliminating sapwood, bedding and sealing all joinery and, with proper care, there will be no leaks which lead to rot.  The best way to maintain a wooden boat is to sand, paint and varnish it each year.  Studies show that this cost is about the same as the annual commissioning of a fiberglass vessel.  There is no doubt that the resale value of an antique wooden boat will far outpace that of its fiberglass counterpart.
