Marine Carpenter on Vancouver Island?

Hi all,

I am looking for someone to do some work on my original CHB teak galley area. I am putting in a bigger fridge and need to move a support and change the size of a drawer and cabinet.

Is there anyone on Vancouver Island (ideally close to Sidney) that does this sort of carpentry/cabinet making and would be experienced in these old trawlers?

You are in Sidney. go over to Van Isle or any of the yards and ask around. Sure to be a few there.
You only need one working engine. That is why I have two.

I have a shipwright who is ideal for the tasks you describe. He is located in the Nanoose area. He would be substantially cheaper than Van Isle. He has done work for me and is excellent. He has worked on many commercial vessels and used to won a Grand Banks Woodie.
