Full biography

At Dagley’s Boatworks we combine old-fashioned craftsmanship with new technology to custom-build or restore a boat that will give you years of enjoyment. Each project is carefully planned to suit your needs, then skillfully developed using epoxy, fibreglass and vinyl-ester in composite construction and durable low-VOC paints. The end result is a boat that handles well in the water, is pleasing to the eye and is easy to maintain. And last but not least, our prices are reasonable.

Our projects range from dragon boats to sloops, canoes to Cape Island fishing boats, up to 40 feet in length. Whether it’s new construction, repair, or a classic or commercial restoration, proprietor-builder, Scott Dagley, has over forty years experience in satisfying clients. Our shop is located in East LeHave. We’re proud to be continuing this tradition.
