A view round the J-Star Marine Services workshop and the yard

The nerve centre of the business the small office space, just need a couple of plywood walls and a couple windows to make a better place for the office staff to work in ordering materials and doing the necessary paperwork to keep the business running   

One of the woodworking workbenches as well as a woodwork lathe  and a second 
bench with the thicknesser and overhead saw.

The other woodworking bench and the tablesaw 

One of the three boats we have in the yard at the moment under going different levels of refit and restoration on them for their different owners.
The first Boat is a 35 year old Hardy 25 in for a major refit with a complete electrical equipment upgrade and general interior and exterior  refit and up dating.

The second boat is a 45 year old Finesse 24 in for a major refit which includes have new main decks and coachroof deck  and some other smaller jobs done 

The third boat is a 1930's classic gaff cutter which is in for a major restoration and is a project boat for the apprentices to work on to gain knowledge of older types of construction of older craft that are still sailed by owners in this part of the country and well as other parts of the country which this company does work for when asked to travel to do this type of work.

Final a dinghy which the company is building when it is not working on the bigger boats and is a good boat to help apprentices learn the skills of building clinker boats
