Picked up this boat today or should I say I went to pick it up and they picked it up. The boathouse it was in had the roof torn off in a tornado at Indian Lake a few weeks ago. Luckily the boat was unscathed. ... See MoreSee Less

Is that a 22 or 25. Hard to tell from the picture

That’s an unreal place
Very sad

They called the right people.

No not for sale, that boat has an owner!

So very lucky.

Raise the roof on that resto

absolutely not. He's the hero of today. Without his job, the boat would possibly have been scrapped. With the plastic on, the boat could live on til today. So - thank you mr Plastic to save a boat for the future 🙂


Brian, you need one of these.

Brian Keen … he is on the naughty list!

Heaters under the boat and heat it up, easier pull off in full sheets

There’s a whole lot of them out West

Looking like the fun just started

Post this in the Chris craft group and just sit back and watch the comment thread…. 🙂

Totally agree, kills a boat.

Naughty list? Should be banned to an empty island!!

I saw a Garwood 4 years ago. Entire boat was done in West system. From 4 feet away you would never of known, had to catch the light just right to see it.

Well sometimes there are 2 choices. Use the boat, have fun with family and friends, or burn it in a bonfire. Life is to short!!

Really better to re-plank. Fiberglass short term fix and going to add a lot extra weight.

“ cloth of death” 💀 it is to be considered

Yeah your right you never fiberglass a wooden boat at any time all

My 18 ft Cavalier came from the factory with the optional fiber glassed bottom. Cost $35 in 1959 according to the hull card and price list.

Worst. Ever. Run don't walk from the chance to buy a boat with that mess on it.

Works for a while...

What our customers are saying

The Motor Boat Garage crew did a fantastic job on stringer, floor, and transom rebuild on my ‘88 Century Coronado. Made improvements and the quality is much better than factory. I would highly recommend this shop for your boat repair/restoration needs!

Our ‘67 SkiffCraft has been given new life by Brian and the crew at Motor Boat Garage! Wonderful new engine, glistening paint job and custom interior woodwork, including seating and staving, we could not be happier with the communication and quality of work. They are a joy to know and work with!

– Tracy M.

My experience has only been exemplary. Always informative, knowledgeable, and kind. I highly recommend the motor boat garage for all of your restoration needs. They are always willing to above and beyond to help and answer questions.
