Superior expertise and service

"We interviewed restorers in several states regarding our Century Coronado. After our intial consultation with Northwood Boatworks, we were extremely impressed with Dave Moore's encyclopedic knowledge of all facets of boat restoration. He performed a complete, meticulous restoration of the Coronado. Although we had originally been thinking that a West System bottom would be best, Dave strongly recommended a traditional bottom, which was the option we chose and he was correct--the boat does not leak at all with his traditionally-built bottom. The entire restoration process was positive, with Dave keeping us informed of progress, and always happy to have us visit his shop to see the restoration in process and to review any issues that arose. With the non-original yet traditional bottom, and some other recommended modifications in hull ventilation, the boat is undoubtedly better than new. Since the complete restoration, Dave has provided launching and delaunching services as well as engine maintenance each season. It has been a great pleasure to work with Dave over the years. If you are considering any work on your antique or classic boat, please consult Dave--he is professional, extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and honest. I highly recommend his services without reservations!!! "

"Not only can Dave get me all the parts I need for my my Chrysler Royal M8 marine engine, he also shares his experience and deep knowledge of vintage crafts generously. Expect prompt replies, fast deliveries and detailed explanations. Good old fashioned service indeed. Recommended!"
