I have been building models of Chesapeake Bay workboats for about fifteen years. I am dedicated to help preserve the history of these boats by building my models as close as I possibly can to the real thing. I have created roughly thirty boats of various sizes and models over these years and wish to share my labors with others who share my enthusiasm. Unlike other boat models, I take pride in every small detail of ware and weathering, from water staining to individual oysters in a net. Nearly every individual part of each boat is handmade and built to scale. While I do not create these pieces with the purpose of making money, I do occasionally sell boats or take commissions. If this interests you, please contact meet at the provided email address.

  1. I’m new to building models. I haven’t actually attempted one yet. I’ve grown up on the bay and love the old work boats. I’m trying to gather as much information as possible before I jump in. Thanks for your time.
