At Dagley's Boatworks, not only can we restore the
beauty of a classic, we can build your own. In
addition to Dragon boats, NorseBoats and canoes, here you can find
just a sample of the number of original boats that we
created at Dagley's
16 foot runabout built with 3/8” solid rabbited mahogany lumber fibreglass cloth/epoxy
inside supported by ash frames. Outside is fibreglass
cloth/epoxy from waterline down.
The side decks are planked with mahogany on each
side with the forward deck a two inch cedar with
quarter inch red cedar strips. The hull is varnished
while the deck was done with 12 coats of Flagship
Floorboards are ¾ inch white cedar boards
that can be removed in four pieces for cleaning,
while two bench seats are ¾ inch western
Finally, the 30 hp Honda motor makes her run
around at 20-30 knots with two people on board.
Our beautifully finished wooden C4 an C15 racing
canoes are fast and famous. Clubs across North
America know that these boat have fine finish,
performance and durability. We know that boats in racing
clubs have to survive in order to finish the race, so
Scot builds them with his well proven construction
foot Lobster Boat
175 hp. diesel engine
Built with a 14 foot
beam and a four foot freeboard, this vessel is
made of Douglas fir plywood two layers 3/8"

cloth saturated in epoxy on the outside of the
Next, it was turned
upright to fiberglass the inside of the hull
with a layer of 1808 fiberglass cloth and
saturated in epoxy.
After this was done we
built the bulkheads four feet apart (also made
of ¾" Douglas fir plywood.) From there the
engine was added and decks laid to suit the
owner's needs. The wheel house and
are custom made. Our boats are
built to last with the best.
