Our primary focus at Sandy River Boatworks is the design of small wooden boats to row, paddle & sail.  Our boats are all designed specifically for cedar strip plank construction, which we feel is an appropriate build type for boats of this scale.  SRBw designs are available in several forms:

     Kits:   Each of our boats has been designed with the novice builder in mind, & that philosophy extends to the creation of comprehensive, easy to build kits.

     Plans:   For the builder who has the materials, tools & equipment to scratch build, we offer a fully detailed planset.

     Builder’s Manual:   This is a boat-specific guide to construction of the Necanicum.  It comes with every kit & covers every phase of construction in detail.  The scratch builder also will find it a handy resource & good companion to the planset. 

     Boatwood:   If the wood is all you need, here it is.

     Complete boats:   All of our boats can be ordered completely built & finished to order.  Call us for info.
