Our wood boats are mostly built from wood boat plans and design from Chesapeake Bay Light Craft in Annapolis, Maryland but we have adapted some plans and can have plans custom designed as well. If you have a boat design you would like to build we have the equipment and the teacher to help you do that. We are located in Indian River, Michigan. Northern Michigan is becoming the boat building mecca of the MidWest. We work closely with David Lesh, former Director of Great Lakes Boat School in Northern Michigan, and support his new Michigan School of Boat Building & Marine Technology in Petoskey new for 2012. The Michigan School is affiliated with Northen Michigan Community College and offer an associates program for boat builders. You can visit the Michigan School Website for classes and more information at www.themichiganschool.org.
At BrassWind Landing we also feature custom wood strip kayaks and canoes from fine wood boat builder Allen Deming of Mackinaw Watercraft.
