Magazine spread from article in WoodenBoat magazineThree years ago, for the first winter since opening its doors for business in 1983, John’s Bay Boat Co. didn’t have a new-boat customer. “In the winter of 2009–10, we basically closed,” says Peter Kass, the company’s founder. “I had to lay everyone off.” With seven boats now on order, things have turned around for the South Bristol, Maine, shop.
