What Is Boatworks Today About?

I launched Boatworks Today in 2011 with the simple idea of being able to share my experience in marine repair with anyone interested in learning more about the craft.  Having the ability to tackle your own boating projects with confidence knowing that the work was done safely and correctly is a wonderful thing!

If you’ve ever had to pay for ‘professional’ work you know how expensive it can be!  It was this fact that really pushed me to start this show.  With a little guidance, I honestly believe that anyone can turn a diamond in the rough into a true gem!

I WANT to provide this information and help!!!

Creating these vids isn’t how I make my living, but I want to move in that direction.  Since 2004 I’ve owned / operated a custom repair shop (which is my bread and butter).  What makes this difficult for me is that making these videos takes time; a LOT of time (and expense)!  Video equipment, hosting fees, general overhead, materials, planning, maintaining websites, etc. quickly add up to a significant amount of time and money.

I want to grow this show far beyond where it is now, but in order to do this it will require a lot more ‘hands on’ time from me.  There are only so many hours in a day, and the only way I am able to do this is with your help!  Your support would allow me to focus more on developing new content and aspects of the show and less about keeping the lights on and putting food on the table.

By supporting this show (whether it be through purchases, donations, or Patreon) you’re allowing me the flexibility to create content that not only may benefit yourself, but also others that may not be in the position to offer assistance monetarily; somewhat of a ‘Pay It Forward’ if you will..

My video’s reach  thousands  of people all over the world that truly want to learn.  I really enjoy being able to connect with people and hear how they were able to complete a particular task / project and make it look awesome!  Something that they are proud of 😉  Personally, I find this much more rewarding than doing a job for a single customer.

It’s because of the support from awesome viewers like yourself that I’m able to provide this free content!  Without you, there would be no show :-/

Thank you!

  1. Hi,

    I’m helping a friend restore an older fiber glass Kayak, it had gone sideways into a partially submerged stump, not pretty, but with your aide and expertise guiding me it is starting to come around. I’m working with the woven glass mat and not the fiber mat , what a pain, but that is what it originally had on it.
    Keep up the good work and thanks for all the help (unknowingly) through your shows !

    Keep your paddles in the water
