We also offer motor work, complete re-builds and minor engine repairs. Depending on the job, the engine may be sent out locally. Take a look at our Shop.
McCall Boat Works has a large inventory of gray boats, semi-restored boats and restored boats for sale. Please browse the Inventory/For Sale.
Boat restoration at MBW can either be partial or complete: we have completed 99% wood replacement restorations to 20% wood replacement restorations. It all depends on the condition of the wood and the amount of wood rot.
McCall Boat Works believes that full bottom replacement is the best solution for most deteriorated and leaky original bottoms or older planked bottoms. The new no soak bottom increase re-sale value and owner enjoyment. McCall Boat Works installs 3M 5200 bottoms (no soak). It involves the usage of a double planked planking system with a 3M 5200 adhesive. Please refer to : http://mccallboatworks.blogspot.com/2010/04/mccall-boat-works-3m5200-bottoms-only.html to educate yourself on why MBW believes in 3M5200 bottoms!!
The completed varnish job looks as if one is looking into a mirror. BEAUTIFUL !! Please check out Boats in Progress.
Need boat storage ??? Not a problem. We have spaces for up to 75+ boats,
at the Shamrock Storage Facility. Check out the Storage link at the
left. Our storage facility is specific to wooden boats; it has a dirt floor
which helps maintain the appropriate humidity to keep your wood from moving
and, therefore, keep your deck seams/lines and plank seams looking new. With
the appropriate humidity, wood movement is minimized and, therefore, varnish
cracking is minimized.
