"Dave Moore isn’t just a repairman, he’s a craftsman. He takes a lot of pride in his work and he should. He took the forty+ year-old boat my father built for me when I was a teenager and not only brought it back to life, but significantly improved it (sorry Dad). Each year Dave puts my boat in for me and takes it out. He listens to me regarding any repairs or amendments I need and he always comes through. Dave isn’t just a friend to me, he’s my boat’s best friend. If I hadn’t found him, I’d no longer have my boat, which is a treasure to me, a reminder of the love my father had for me."

"Wow.....Dave just spent an hour on the phone with me giving me a crash course in wood boat ownership and I’m not even a customer yet! He is very helpful, knowledgeable and experienced in his craft. His advice was was key in helping me make a purchase decision. Thanks again Dave!"

"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!"
