I had the pleasure of meeting and beginning a working relationship with John Thomas 15 years ago at Canal Boatyard. I would highly recommend him without any reservation to any boat owner. He is a person with great integrity and unsurpassed craftsmanship in his field.

I have encountered nothing whatsoever they can’t do in the comprehensive refurbishment of wooden boats. What I like best about John is his thoughtful and measured approach to every project and his reluctancy to charge ahead with the unnecessary.

I know I could never have done without John Thomas. He saved my boat.

The quality of workmanship, attention to detail and how the customer feels like a friend in the shop will keep me knocking on their door as long as I have a wooden boat.
