Without planking seams and bungs to swell and break the varnish, the finish remains as perfect as the day it was built. The mahogany planks never cup, crack or move, maintaining perfect fairness because they are laminated to stable marine plywood sub-planking. With no caulking maintenance, they can be stored out of the water without seams opening, and they cannot leak. They have all the beauty of traditionally built wooden classics, yet without any of the traditional maintenance. Both restorations and new builds from Craven Boatbuilding have won year after year in the finest classic boat shows, such as the Lake Tahoe Concours D'Elegance, the Lake Coeur D'Alene Wooden Boat Show, and the Keels & Wheels Wooden Boat Show in Texas.
