January 9, 2020 - 

     Wait - 2020? Where's my flying car?!  I'm amazed that the future promised by Blade Runner hasn't quite materialized....  I'm actually more amazed that this is Gull Lake's eleventh(!) year in operation.*** 

     Despite some winter hibernation, work is going fast!  We have a few openings and the time to get your project in and out for early spring, so contact us if you a have a project!

      Currently, we're working on repairs and finishes on an 11' Chestnut and a 16' Nomoningue; we hope to do justice for an OG Ted Moores' Sundance that's in for re-glassing.  Thanks to Camp Mi-A-Kon-Da for keeping it real with two more cedar/canvas repairs - always unique (I've never had to re-tack an entire hull, before now).  Also here is a long-term rebuild of a nice 16' Oak and Mahogany sailboat; and a couple of custom Minto 16' hulls (FOR SALE!).  

      This website is constantly being updated, so keep checking back (if you see Kitty, it's under construction)!  If you really miss the old site or are looking for photos of past projects, most of the old photo content is preserved on GLBWs Facebook page.


 ***Mad LOVE to everyone who has trusted me with their projects, helped this endeavour, and supported the cause.  Hails and special love to the Gregor, the Sinclairs, Inky, Dave E, Canadian Canoes and Bear Mountain, Rashmi M, Peter F, Almo, Sam C, 3.1 Crew + Bonessa, Kilcoo Camp, Neal H, Led Zep and the Wu-Tang Clan.  No chance GLBW could have endured  without you.
