About Wayne Shibley

For more than 30 years Iíve been repairing, restoring and building, wood boats , rowing , paddling ,and sailing whenever I have a chance. I attended WCVTI boatbuilding school in Lubec, Maine and took a correspondence course and studied boat design at Westlawn.

I have operated my own business since 1984. The first ten years in Nova Scotia, Canada and the last twelve years in Chicago. I have space at Rentner Marine , 13535 S. Forest Ave., Chicago ,Il. 60827 where I can work on your boat or I can go to your boat and work on it in another storage facility or marina in the Chicago area.

The type and extent of restorations can vary a great deal. More>> New construction on wooden or fiberglass boats can be a new mast, new galley, or a new boat. I can design what is needed or we can obtain a design for your new construction. More>>
