Having refinished our boat (and others) many times, I know exactly what it takes and I was a little nervous about letting someone else do the job for me. I wondered whether the same attention to detail would be paid by someone else who doesn t love the boat the way I do.

When we first spoke about Runabout Restorations completing the job, I knew the price Charlie quoted was right because I know how much time it takes to do the job properly. Having seen Charlie s work on other boats, I came to the conclusion that he was the right shop to give Last Chance the care she needed.

When Charlie called to tell me it was time to bring her in, I was impressed that he started the job immediately. His stop by anytime invitation was reassuring and his in-progress photos were what finally put me completely at ease, knowing I had made the right decision to entrust Last Chance to a real professional.

The repairs Runabout Restorations made to the deck seams and bungs have held up and the three coats of varnish have the decks and sides in Bristol condition.

Once I received the boat finished, right on time, I was able to appreciate the attention to detail no runs, no varnish where there shouldn t be, expert tape lines (and no residual tape) in short, a new finish with virtually no evidence that they touched the boat!

We are very pleased with the price, the process and especially the finished result.

Charlie Wallace Runabout Restorations,

I d like to take a moment to thank you for your excellent re-finishing job on my 30 Hacker.

The job was done in a timely fashion and the finished product, deck and hull, exceeded my expectations.

The few concerns I did have were dealt with immediately. Your years of varnishing experience are obvious. You may show my boat anytime.

Karen and I are long time wooden boat owners and wish to express sincere appreciation to Charlie and his Runabout Restorations team for the great work performed on our boats! We have worked with others over the years and this has been by far our best experience with the least suprises. Working, or I should say collaborating with Charlie, has been most rewarding and enjoyable. Charlie has been a friend for many years and we certainly wish we had initiated our boat relationship years ago!

Thank you Charlie

Charlie and his staff were instrumental in the entire process, from my purchase of the boat in Wolfeboro, right through the shake-down cruise at The Libby Museum, along with follow-up contacts after returning home to the Finger Lakes Region of New York State with Hessy. Charlie kept me well informed as to the progress throughout the restoration. The restoration was very professional from the quality workmanship through follow-up.

5 Stars . Thank you Charlie and staff.

Charlie has been kind to offer the Boat Museum in Wolfeboro auction donations in the form of bottom paint or topside varnish for boats up to 28 feet. Over the past several years I have acquired two such auction donations. This fall it was time to freshen up Yum Runner, our grandchildren s 15 ft 1957 Runabout. I restored this boat for them in 2009 and it was due for freshening up. Charlie honored the two auction tickets and did complete bottom, sides and deck varnish ( with an add on payment from me) The boat was done promptly and I was quite impressed with the attention to detail and workmanship. I would strongly recommend him to others and will be considering going back to him with another of my boats soon.
