Storing and maintaining Beetle Cats® has been an integral part of our business since 1938. During the course of the year we restore a steady stream of wooden and glass boats: performing re-framing jobs, deck jobs, plank replacements --- you name it. We can resuscitate just about any bronze-fastened Beetle. So no matter what your boat might be suffering from, give us a call --- we've pretty much seen it all.
In 2013 Peter and his daughter Taylor Eastman won the Leo Telesmanick Beetle Cat® 'National' Championships with the red boat shown above. They also won the Hyannis Regatta Beetle Cat® fleet (the weekend before the Leo) and the Barnstable Yacht Club Beetle Cat® summer championship series the following year. Slide 9 shows what's needed even on a 12 year-old Beetle when the only place it leaks is between the CB Trunk and the Keel. Worked like a charm.
