General Updates

There’s been a lot of changes with Boatworks Today over the past year!!

By | Boat Repair, General Updates, Uncategorized | No Comments

But I’m not going to turn this into a long winded post, instead just going to highlight some of the things that I’m most excited and thankful for 🙂

In short we moved from Wisconsin to Michigan, sold the old house and shop, built a new shop which is almost done (hoping to have that 100% finished in the next 3-4 weeks).  Attended the Newport Boatshow which was amazing!  Had a chance to meet hundreds of folks that have followed the channel for years, as well as had the opportunity to meet a number of other boating channels and hang out for a few days.  Very cool experiences!!

One other thing that’s been in the works for almost 2 years and finally came to fruition this Spring was that I became an online retailer for Alexseal Yacht Coatings!  If you’re not familiar with this paint, here’s a writeup that I did going into detail as to why;  without hesitation I believe this coating system is by far the best out there when it comes to 2 part paints.  Seriously, nothing else even comes close…  If you’d like to see how to apply and repair this stuff, here’s a couple playlists of working with this material.

If you have a project coming up and think this would be a good fit, HERE’S where you can order from  🙂  I should also add that if you’re a supporter over on Patreon you’ll be able to take 10% off the Alexseal order which is FAR more than what the Patreon subscription would be!  Spend $10 to save over $100 😉 If you’re into a project and would like some personalized help along the way I also offer that as part of the Patreon membership!

But with Winter officially here (at least in Michigan it is lol) for most in the Northern climates it’s probably not the best time of year to be doing a painting project, but the Holiday Season is right around the corner!  It’s been a few years since I’ve had any BWT merch in stock but I thought it might be worth having a few things on hand; mostly just hats for now.


If you’d like to get a stocking stuffer for one of your boating enthusiasts, these can be purchased HERE!   Use discount code 10%ForMe to save on your purchase (discount good through the end of 2022 🙂

Well, I started this post saying I wasn’t going to make this a mini-novel so going to wrap this up.  Have a safe and enjoyable Holidays!!

As always hope you’re doing well and Thanks For Watching :-)!!


A New Fiberglass Guide And New Website!

By | Boat Repair, General Updates | 4 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve done any actual updates about Boatworks Today; mainly because there really wasn’t anything too exciting to announce, but that has finally changed!

In this past week there has been a major over-haul of the website With ALL of that effort coming from Josh and Alyssa over at https://www.fortirisgroup.com/  They did an absolutely amazing job, and without question this new site is something that I never would have been able to do myself!  When you have a chance stop in and take a tour 😉  www.boatworkstoday.com

The other bit of big news is this past week I was finally able to finish a Fiberglass guide that I’ve been working on the past couple months! This is the first of what will likely be 6 downloadable guides each covering, in depth,  a different topic as it relates to fiberglass repair 

Please check it out and if it looks like something that would be helpful for your projects let me know what you think!! Also sharing this post with your boating friends is always much appreciated!

Thank you in advance and have a great week!!
