"Dave was very helpful on my project, a 1961 Chris Craft 17-ft runabout. The found the parts I needed and took the time to give me much useful advice on all manner of things including tips on restoration, maintenance, boating skills, and some historical perspectives on wooden boats. He is a highly knowledgeable man on the topic of wooden boats. Listen to what he has to say. "

Dave is a GEM!"I'm building a 17' gentleman's racer. I'm unskilled and inexperienced in wooden boat building. After making an appointment to come to his shop Dave took the time to listen to what I was trying to do and to what hardware/parts I thought I needed at this point. He then went through his 'parts barns' to find what I needed and then explained in detail how I would use these parts as I continue building. Dave is a REAL FIND! KNOWLEDGEABLE, EXPERIENCED, and PERSONABLE! Thanks Dave!"

"Dave at Northwood tackled a job no one else could do. I had a failing water pump on a Lycoming engine( Dodge Boat 1934. The whole world said "can't be fixed, no parts, too rare" Well. Dave put on his technical and mechanical genius hat and rebuilt it perfectly I am so impressed by his capability He made it look easy What talent and with much business professionalism to boot. He does what he says. Thank you Dave, All my antique boat and car friends will know about you"
