                Rodger C. Swanson, Proprietor
 
     Drawing on 37 years of experience, Swanson Boat Company specializes in products and services for the tradition-minded oarsman
 
    
     Our goal is to enhance your rowing experience.  Our Custom Fit
approach includes plans, design/build, oars, hardware and accessories
tailored as a unified package to best suit your needs.  Your hands-on
participation can be as little or as great as you like.  Whether you are an
experienced or amateur boatbuilder,  we can assist you in "doing it all" yourself, or we'll do the building, fabricating and fitting out from start to any degree of completion.  All in-house boat building is done by   Walter Baron of Old Wharf Dory Company.
