Wooden Boatworks Launches Web Site

Wooden Boatworks of Greenport, NY, has launched an extraordinary web site.

With photographs from Peter Braune and Benjamin Mendelowitz and video by Tom Garber, the site is a poetic visual feast for anyone who knows and loves classic wooden boats.

Donn Costanzo and Bruce Wahl of Wooden Boatworks specialize in re-creating, restoring and maintaining racing yachts by the greatest designers of the past 100-plus years. The site includes photos of work in progress and finished boats in action.

Utterly unique to the site are eleven mini-profiles of these designers from William Fife I, II & III, through Gil Smith and Nat Herreshoff, and on to John Alden, Olin Stephens and others of modern times – with more to come.

Links to the Wooden Boatworks site author Julie Clark Boak of Salmagundi Productions (my multi-talented wife), its designer Chris Boyd of Boyd Design Studio and web sites of others who helped create the site are at the bottom of this page.
