"WOW!!! What a find in Dave. My 1937 Garwood needed a new engine and Dave delivered. The engine fit perfectly. He’s honest, friendly, loves sharing his knowledge and easy going. I wouldn’t be using my boat if not for Dave. Thanks Dave❤️"

"Dave has helped me out multiple times with both parts and knowledge as I worked my way thru the restoration of my prewar Chris Craft . He most recently pulled a pre war model K from his collection, went they the mechanics of it and shipped it to me in running condition. Thanks Dave !"

"Dave politely responded to my inquiry, on his web site, asking if he had an oil dip stick for a 1961 Graymarine 327 V8 engine in his collection of used vintage marine engine parts. His answer was, I think so and it turned out that he did. Thank you Dave for searching for it, finding it and sending it to me. Not an easy find."

"Dave was very helpful in locating an obscure part for my 1952 "Sportsman". He had a depth knowledge of vintage Crist Craft boats, spent a considerable amount of time talking about boats and general preventable maintenance. The part arrived in a short time and at a reasonable price."

"Dave is an amazing source for all things classic boat. His passion for early Chris Craft triple cockpits has been a tremendous help in our quest to complete the restoration of a 1926 26’ Chris Craft. His experience, knowledge, collection of resource materials and inventory of parts have been a key to the completion our work. If Dave does not have a needed item in stock, he either knows where to acquire it or has the ability to reproduce it. Every visit, either in person or by phone is an educational experience. As we near the end of this restoration, it is obvious to me that the quality and correctness of our work have been enhanced by the involvement of Northwoods Boatworks and the relationship that we have built with Dave.Ed Fairchild Fairchild Boatworks"
