ABOUT US

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE

Each "Hope It Floats" boat is hand crafted in New England with native woods and a lot of patience.  I build one boat at a time to focus on quality.  Light weight boats make it easier to enjoy getting on and off the water. After a long day on the water, picking up a boat that weighs less than a school bag can be a dream come true.  My lightest boat to date is just 10 pounds!

Light Weight and Fun to Paddle

Lakeside Model 14'  (3 seats - tandem and solo positions)  weights 40 lbs.
