I've been a boat builder/repairer for 30 years (yikes) and started my own business Ancora yacht service 25 years ago. It been fun if not lucrative. Been married twice and have two great kids and I live in the Hampton's what more could one ask for?

Welcome Jim. It’s good to have another boat builder here. We are a distinct minority but please show us some of your work. There are many more here who appreciate them than there are who build them.

Hi Jim. Welcome to LJ. I’m glad to see boatbuilders like yourself and Shipwright on the site. My knees ache just thinking about actually building a boat and my wife doesn’t like the water, but I still buy Wooden Boat magazine every month anyway just to admire the builders skills and to enjoy the great stories about building and sailing.
