Northern Michigan Wood Boat Builder of Small Wood Craft
BrassWind BoatWorks is a Northern Michigan Wooden Boat Shop located in Indian River, Michigan. Richard Lincoln is the resident wood boat builder and co-owner of BrassWind Landing. He offers workshops on building and restoring tape seam wood boats.
We have custom wood boats for sale. We will build a custom wood boat with the design of your choice from Chesapeake Bay Light Craft. We order the wooden boat design plans from Chesapeake Light Craft and then we can cut the boat out here which saves on shipping. It also lets you see another part of the wood boat building process.
We feature boats built by Richard Lincoln of BrassWind BoatWorks and also wood strip boats built by Allen Deming of Mackinaw Watercraft including sea kayaks, solo canoes and kayaks.
Currently we are building a Chesapeake Light Craft Mill Creek 13 in our wood boat shop. We also have a Millcreek 13 wood kayak on display in our paddle sports showroom along with a Passage maker dinghy built by Richard Lincoln. There are other beautiful boats from Mackinaw Watercraft in the paddlesports showroom and in our Art Gallery.
This year, as fundraiser, the Indian River Chamber of Commerce is raffling a 17′ Thunderbay Sea Kayak built by Allen Deming of Mackinaw Watercraft. We will have the tickets available here for sale very soon.
