    Default looking for boatbuilder in Port Washington NY area

    Some 30 years ago I did a restoration of a Manhassett Bay One Design which is located in Port Washington NY. The boat is 21' loa and of traditional plank on frame construction. Now the boat leaks and needs attention. I'm at a point in my life where I no longer wish to drive from Maine down to New York. Also the new owner doesn't want to spend that kind of money for my travels. Is there a boatbuilder closer by who wishes to tackle the job?

    There are yards in Greenport that do traditional work. I think there is one on Northport too, Seymour's perhaps?

    Thank you John,
    With your help I did find Wooden Boatworks in Greenport. I'll have the boat owner contact them.
    I trucked that boat back and forth to Rockport ME for many years, doing the maintenance. Also occasionally a few other MBOD's in the fleet. Those days are done for me.

    Glad to hear it. I've seen a few of those boats, they're worth saving.
