Chequamegon Boat Works is a Traditional Wooden Boat Shop located across from Bodin Fisheries on the south face, or working waterfront, of Bayfield, Wisconsin.

Garry Couch, proprietor and builder, has lived in the World of Wooden Boats 40+ years: on their decks fishing and sailing, in yards and shops, on a lofting floor and at drafting table.  Every boat is a culmination of a life's work.

Custom work available: wood/canvas canoe restoration as well as custom oars and spars for small craft.


Half Hull Models - More info @

Lake Superior Working Watercraft Collection: from field documentations by the builder, plus selected West Coast fishing boats, and the Canadian fishing schooner Bluenose.
