Joe Thompson, after 10 years with Brooklin Boatyard, left in 2009 to start a new boat building and retail shop in Sedgwick Me. Salt Pond Rowing offers a selection of rowing and sailing vessels including prams, skiffs, dinghies, dories, wherries, and recreational rowing shells as well as oars and rowing accessories. Joe specializes in glued plywood lapstrake construction using high quality marine plywood and solid wood with west epoxy resin. Designs come from the drawing boards of John Brooks, Joel White, and Joe Thompson.Salt pond rowing currently has a Peregrine Wherry which has recently returned to Maine from a year at Adirondack Rowing. The boat has a new paint job and fresh varnish and a new set of Salt Pond Sculling oars. Also available is a brand new Ellen sailing dinghy. Boats coming this fall include a sailing model of the Shellback dinghy and a 16 ft sliding seat version of the Redmond Whisp. As always I can build custom boats and shells to order. The shop at the corner of 172 and Hales Hill Rd. will be open by appointment or by chance.
