I wanted to write you and tell you what a wonderful job you and Richard did on my 1971 Barracuda Correct Craft. Jack brought the boat home from Traverse City as a surprise for Christmas. When he led me in to see it, I was Flabbergasted! I never expected such a gorgeous hull. Your hard work was evident from bow to stern. The hull was so bad when I delivered it, I was embarrassed. All the extra touches, i.e. chroming the Correct Craft insignias, new rub rail just added to this glorious sight. I also wanted to thank you for all the wonderful pictures and communications I received during the restoration. I now have great pictures to add to the boat’s history. Your attention to detail, quality of work, and fair price made this restoration a very enjoyable experience. Thanks again. I would be glad to act as a reference if you would like me to.

Dear Mark:
A personal note of thanks for the truly fine workmanship you preformed on my “family heirloom” canoe. My father purchased the 18′ wooden and canvas wrapped canoe in 1942. Its maiden voyage was down the Au Sable River with its permanent storage the past 70 years at the family cottage on Little Glen Lake.
Frankly, I had almost given up on finding anyone who could “save” the canoe. I debated for several years whether I should just dump it or salvage it. When I heard of your business I thought I’d give you a call. And I am glad I did. What a remarkable job of refurbishing! To discover someone who is a skilled craftsman, who professionally invests in his work product, exhibits personal integrity and takes pride in the end result is a vanishing breed of man in our communities today.
Thank you for a job well done!
