You must call about making a Cutwater pattern using the youtube videos below showing the steps involved.
I have a few good original cutwaters from parts boats, it might be a good idea to call me first before you make a pattern. 508 333 9336 NO TEXT.
I started to build and repair Cutwaters for boats in 1979. I have most Chris Craft and Gar Wood patterns in stock. I only have a few Century patterns because they are or were still available. I do not have very many Hacker Craft patterns. Cutwaters cost $20 per welded inch to reproduce, with some of the longer and more complicated ones costing $21 per welded inch. I also reproduce Transom Bands @ $11 per inch top to bottom, per side, and will need a pattern from you. I no longer buff cutwaters but prep them for buffing, I still buff transom bands. A 50% deposit is required before any work is started. There is up to a $70 s&h charge per package. Please call for more details. 508 333 9336 NO TEXT.
I also repair Cutwaters, as long as they are made from stainless steel. I must have them in hand to give a quote. I only reproduce Cutwaters using 18 gauge stainless steel as per original. The price quoted includes drilling, countersinking, polishing.
All parts are drilled and countersunk for number 6 screws 3/8" from front and trailing edges unless you indicate different on your pattern. Cutwater side profile must be 2 1/2" wide or wider. Curved transom bands must be 1 7/8" wide or wider. Sheared straight edge straight bands can be as narrow as 3/4" wide.
I also custom build Cutwaters and Transom bands from your patterns, View videos linked below for the pattern I require.
Please call for current shipping address as I spend 4 months a year a month at a time in New England. The work is still done in NW Indiana as it has been 34 years.
