If you are looking for a warm, dry, well-equipped and spacious shop for projects, we have just the place. Included in the rental is the use of our stationary shop tools ( table saw, jointer, drill press, ect.), dedicated bench space with storage, and 110-volt outlets. Not included are hand tools and items that are either disposable or portable (drills, sanders, vacuums, ect.). The shop can accommodate a spar up to 85’ and many boats up to 36’. A business license and insurance are required.

Individual Renters

Individual renters can bring in their boat or bench project and have access to the same benefits a professional would–tools, space, and more–as long as the owner can prove to the shop manager that he or she is competent and safe with the tools. A shop tools class may be required.

Host a Workshop

Rent the space for a week and bring your design and student to a group build. The boatshop can accommodate up to 12 kayaks or 6-8 small boats. We have hosted designs such as Pygmy Kayaks, SCAMP, and various stand-up paddleboards and surfboards.
