Piel Craftsmen offers a collection of beautiful
handmade solid wood half hulls made by our craftsmen and by other
local New England craftsmen. In general the wooden models are
handmade using the bread and butter method. Our finishes are hand
rubbed and vary from a soft satin sheen to a high gloss depending on
the type of boat finish. Each half hull has a name plate on the
backboard. Half hull models that are constructed differently will be
