Classic Craft ® --- Antique and Classic Wood Boat Restoration, Sacramento, Ca

Below are several of our slideshow presentations of our antique and classic wooden boat restorations from the last 40 years. I have made sure to take a photographic record of each stage of restoration. While I am not a professional photographer, I think the photos will show enough detail to see the many stages of the restoration. Hope you enjoy! Below the slide shows are some individual before and after photos of Wooden Boat Repairs and Restorations done by Sacramento Boat Repair DBA Classic Craft ®.
