"My wife and I toured Dave's shop and had a very informative visit. Over the summer, he provided parts for my Chris Craft restoration project. His prices are very reasonable. He is an expert in all aspects of restoration as well as was very willing to help diagnose and resolve issues with my project beyond my ability. I look forward to doing business with him in the future and I highly recommend him to anyone with a wood boat restoration project."

"We've had Dave work on our 1947 U22 for several years on different projects. He knows how these Woodies should be. He's a true artist. His love for and dedication to these boats makes him someone you can entrust your boat to."

"What a great group... Dave Moore's knowledge is incredible. He not only helped me with the rare part I was looking for, but shared his experience to get my antique engine running top notch. Highly recommended"

"We've taken our 1947 U22 to Dave Moore for several projects over several years. He's an expert at Woodies care and restoration both structurally and mechanically. His knowledge of and dedication to the artistry of Classic Boats is tough to beat. You can safely entrust your Woodies to Dave at Northwood Boatworks. His operation is a must to see. His collection of parts and patterns is amazing."

"Dave Moore is extremely knowledgeable about wood boats of all makes and models. He has an absolute wealth of historical knowledge that comes with over 30 years of experience, and all in northwest Michigan. His focus is on "old school" construction. He is very generous with his time to assist the customer in problem solving. His wealth of knowledge, in wood construction and the mechanical systems, is extensive. Coupled with a nearly unlimited inventory of parts contained in several buildings, he can not only solve your problem, but also provide you with the part you need. Combined with an extensive machine shop, if in the unlikely possibility he does not have the part you need, he can usually make it for you, repair what you have or knows someone who can help. Every time I call or visit Dave, I add to my knowledge of wood boats. Northwood Boatworks is every bit a FIVE STAR company. You can't go wrong,"
