Wooden Boat Specialist Far Cry Boats Is “Launched” in the Lagoon in Vineyard Haven

Far cry boats

Far Cry Boats owner Rick Brown has given new meaning to the phrase "launching a business." He has spent the past summer building a floating workshop for his wooden-boat construction and repair service and as you can see in the photo above, the business has officially been launched.

Brown has been working with wooden boats for more than 40 years, most recently at the nearby Maciel Marine. He specializes in boats up to 22' and has built or repaired peapods, dorys and skiffs.

Far Cry Boats, which is about a half mile away from the more well-known builder Gannon & Benjamin, adds further evidence to the realization that Martha's Vineyard is becoming a center for wooden boats.
