Custom Boat Parts to Order

Custom Sliding hatch by J O Woodworks

I’ve been sailing for years, so a natural extension of my work with wood was to make custom parts for boats.

JO Woodworks still do occasional Custom boat parts on request but now focus on Boat Kits and Custom Furniture.

We Still make Hatch Covers, Teak Grates, Drop in Galleys and many other components, but we don’t make after market centreboards and rudders any more.

We used to make after market boat parts in particular Centreboards, Rudders, Tillers and hatches

We sold that part of the business to our friend Bobby Chilek who can supply nationwide.

His contact details are below at Bobby’s Boat Works

Custom One-Off Boat Parts

We still supply custom or after-market boat parts, I can build it. Just let me know what you need and, if I don’t have a template for it, I will find one. And check that Bobby Chilek (link below) is not already making what you need.

If you need something custom, just ask. I can either work from your design or help you create a design for whatever you have in mind. I can supply in almost any wood type, including parts made from “starboard and lexan”.

Tinted lexan makes a wonderful hatch board that will let in the light. Starboard also makes a great hatch and can also be used for the hatch rails. It does not require the maintenance that wood constantly exposed to the sun needs.
