PLEASE NOTE: PARKER MARINE WILL BE CLOSED FROM APRIL 9 TO JUNE 1 WHILE I AM IN TRANSIT FROM FLORIDA TO MAINE BY BOAT. ALL ORDERS RECEIVED DURING THIS TIME WILL BE FILLED UPON MY ARRIVAL IN MAINE. IF POSSIBLE, I WILL FILL SOME ORDERS BY PDF EMAIL ATTACHMENTS (SUCH AS STUDY PLANS).
Dear Friends and Clients: We are open for business and apologize for any delays in shipping. Please note that sending books out of the US now costs over $40USD using flat rate envelopes (cheapest way). Consequently we must raise our “overseas shipping” rate for Books, Catalogues and Plans. In many instances we can send Plans and Study Plans as PDF file attachments to emails. We can also attach Word Files for Articles, Construction Notes, and other written documents.
I am sad to announce that my best friend and boatbuilding partner of 38 years, Bill Smith, died this Spring. Bill had a brilliant mind which he could apply to anything, including building beautiful violins late in life. Together we built a dozen big cruising sailboats, and Bill built numerous boats on his own, several to my designs. He had a generous spirit, and would help anyone who asked him. Bill was also a very talented musician, and played in numerous bands. My world will never be the same without him.
PARKER MARINE ENTERPRISES sells Construction Manuals, Catalogues, Study Plans and Full Stock Plans. We do custom design work for construction in cold-molded wood, plywood, traditional wood, fiberglass, aluminum, ferrocement and steel. We do on-site or remote consultant work for new construction and major restorations.
We have added a new category to our website (CONSTRUCTION) so that you can study sequential photographs of the methods used to build our different designs. To contact us, please write or email the addresses below.
