Over the years the Bayles Boat Shop has undertaken many small wooden boat projects. These projects, whether contracted with individuals or initiated by us as a fund raising effort, have ranged from full restorations of classic wooden boats to individual one-time repairs whether it be a rotted transom or a cracked hull.  In addition to the above, we allot space each year to building a small wooden boat of a selected design which is raffled off each Summer at the culmination of our annual Quick & Dirty Boat Building Competition. Our current years raffle boat can be viewed under current projects.


In Fall of 2018 we initiated our Student & Youth Boat Building Program. Working under close supervision with several of our dedicated volunteers, the program is designed to introduce 14 to 18 year-olds to basic boat building skills and techniques. We are excited about this new program and look forward to expanding it to include more complex building projects and required skillsets. This student boat build can also be seen below in our current projects. 



Shown below are the projects currently underway in our shop. We invite you to stop by and we'll be more than happy to give you a tour and explain each build.  In the mean time, simply click on any of the photos to see highlights of that projects progress.



Shown are just some of the watercraft Bayles Boat Shop has built, restored or repaired over the years. If you see a particular design that sparks your interest or maybe dreamed of building someday please contact us or stop by. We will be happy to discuss with you how to make your dream become a reality.  There are so many design possibilities to get excited about!
