35 Foot Duffy Rebuild

Information on our rebuild

Corazon Fishing Charters

I partnered with Baldwin Harbor Marine 516-223-1176 (Steve and Sons, Eddie) to help with the refit – they are a hidden gem in the Freeport area. Baldwin Harbor has deep finishing and mechanical ability and are great to work with. They are working closely with me and I’m able to do some of the work as well. The heavy mechanical, construction, and finishing being done by them. Steve was part of the buying process as he looked at the boat with me and committed to the project.

I can’t say enough good things about Steve and his crew – it’s turned into just a great effort.

Where did all the parts come from?

All the standard and parts and hard to figure out how to fit pieces come from Fred Chall's in Freeport NY. Chuck at Fred Chall's has been part of all my projects and he works closely with the Baldwin Harbor crew.

Specialty and Downeast types of parts come from Gloucester and Maine businesses.

The Second station is a game changer for the way i run the boat - when we fish i need to be in the cockpit so i can keep the boat in the optimum position, speed. I have to look at the crew, guests and fish to figure out where to put the boat to both find and land fish.
