Shipwrighting and Sailing are my passion.


I've worked on boats in some fashion since I was 14. I was raised on a sailboat and the sea has been my bounty ever since.  I've been a 100–ton US Coast Guard licensed Captain since I was 18 and have captained charter vessels and done deliveries. I've also trained as a US sailing instructor.

My specialty is interior & exterior woodworking and structural fabrication. I also love teaching: I teach sailing, boat handling, and boat system maintenance. It's important to me that you feel completely comfortable with the safety and operations of your boat and systems.

I bring a lifetime of experience to my business and to your project!


Smooth Sailing,

Michael Gifford, Owner and Operator
