    BL Captain,

    Contact John Riddle of Riddle Boatworks in Vermillion, OH, just west of Cleveland. His telephone number is 440-963-0353. His website is www.riddleboatworks.net. I have known him for at least 10 years and have seen his work which is very good. Lately, we have been talking about small speedboat restorations.

    Eric

    Thanks Eric. I will be sure to check them out. We have a 29' 1932 CC that is being finished in another shop in Columbus and the guy has been a nightmare to work with. There has been no progress on the boat in the last 5 weeks. We need to pull it out and find another shop to finish the job.

    experienced restoration

    I know of a young man who is highly skilled in wooden boat restoration. I believe he is in worthington ohio. His buisness is called McAlister Woodworking. I know his number is in the yellow pages. Definetly a skilled craftsman. I think he moved here from Bermuda, I could go on and on about this young man he did excellent work for me.
