Congratulations to owner Andrew Lee and his staff at Sirens Boat Works in Merrickville, Ontario.
We are a team of builders and finishers who all share a passion for the craft of wooden boat restoration.
The time came when I needed a bigger shop when my client was restoring a 1928 28’ Chris Craft triple cockpit – which was reputed to be owned by Al Capone. I have since brought on qualified team members who all share the passion for wooden boat restoration. Shawn Neeson: Shawn has been working with me for the past three years, He has a strong background in refinishing and is my right hand man, He also takes care of all accounting duties. Alexis Nimis: Alexis has been working with me for the past 3 years, She has a strong background in finishing. Myself (Andrew Lee) : I am a trained cabinet maker who has dedicated the past 10 years to all aspects of wooden boat restoration. She was once owned by Kenneth Barager of Fairport New york, and then was purchased by one of the founders of the ACBS- Walter Weber., rather than directly offering items mentioned here for sale or auction, provides a huge database of information about government auctions and foreclosures. The late 1950's and early 1960's were a major boom time for boating, and a transitional area that would change and shape the boating industry for the future. Many manufacturers tried to find something to make them stand out of the crowd, and give them a leg up in sales.
Many of the boats that were produced during the late 1950's and early 1960's were quite stylish when they were built, but as we all know, styling trends come and go. On this page, I'm going to share my collection, and the process of restoring my boats, motors, and trailers to thier original glory.
In August thousands of vessels, from small sailboats to large replicas of caravels arrived at the IJ bay north of the city all together and then passed to the capital of the Netherlands in 2015 involving 8,000 vessels are given! The boat has been refreshed with 26 coats of marine varnish, newly upholstered seats with marine fabric and re-chromed hardware. Additionally, there will be sessions on getting the best performance from both inboard and outboard motors, marine castings and pattern making, and researching your boat. Fees cover all lesson materials and select meals – Friday (dinner), Saturday (breakfast and lunch), and Sunday (breakfast). One of the innovations from the war was the use of lighter weight plywood for construction.
It came with a Chrysler Crown, but the owner modified it by installing a Scripps 152 engine and a rear wind screen.
This company was off our radar until a recent tip alerted us to yet another quality boat restorer.

They were looking to have a restoration expert on site to service and repair the many wooden boats he stores at his boatyard. He has Boatbuilding in his heritage and is a natural when it comes to quality craftsmanship and truly understanding wooden boats. She is extremely detail oriented, understands wood, and is able to create flawless finishes. With a U lift on site its easy to lift boats right out of the Rideau Canal and put them in the shop for work.

It marked the transition era, when wood boats lost their crown as king, to be slowly taken over by a new, miracle material, the space-age Fiber-Glass! Strong, Rot proof, and maintenance free (just ask the manufacturers!), Fiberglass also allowed builders to build pretty much any shape they wanted- Curves, angles, you name it. Often times, this took the form of some sort of technological innovation, a flashy color, or perhaps some sort of wild, off the wall styling.
That Pink Lake N Sea that was so glorious back in '59 was terribly outdated within only a few years. The weekend will also feature a presentation by Tony Mollica on the history of a local boat manufacturer, Fitzgerald & Lee, and its association with Gar Wood.
The Gar Wood was used in the Thousand Islands area for four years, then put into covered storage in 1939, where it sat for 35 or more years! The sale of the Gar Wood includes a new galvanized trailer, Sunbrella tan cover, original engine manual and brochure. It was then we purchased The Queen and a total restoration was done, as we call it…a backyard restoration. It seemed that this new miracle material was absolutely perfect for boat building, and everyone seemed to want a piece of the action.
Many boats met their untimely ends due to the change in tastes- The lucky ones were parked away in the weeds to await their fates.
The Century is powered by a 6 cylinder Hercules engine (6 volt) with new fuel lines – in reasonable condition. Copper nails were installed New decks and transom were epoxies to a plywood base layer to reduce shrinkage.
The boat was originally commissioned and owned by Louis Silverwood of Silverwood Dairies in London, Ontario.
Boat builders were springing up all over the place, producing a dizzying array of models in all sizes and types. Others borrowed their styling from cars, sprouting fins that, much like in the auto industry, seemed to grow until they reached a point of excess.
The REALLY lucky ones were then found, some 40 or so years later, by crazy people like me who want to restore them to their former glory. The Greavette is powered by a 317 Chrysler Hemi engine and Borg Warner Velvet Drive, which was all recently rebuilt. She has a convertible top, mahogany interior and dyed cow hide upholstery, white cedar hull and mahogany decks. Other style items migrated over from cars as well- even tail lights, headlights, and other details. She was at one time used by priests for transportation to an island retreat near Clayton, New York, and also for a period of time as a guide boat. Miss London is in original shape and is due for an overhaul to bring her back to 100%…or just put her in the water and enjoy.
