Lewis Family Boatbuilders NC Now UNCTV
Gtgt WELL, MY FATHER BUILT BOATS, AND I STARTED BUILDING BOATS BY WATCHING HIM AND HELPING HIM, AND I'VE BEEN BUILDING BOATS EVER SINCE. gtgt THAT GROWING UP IN BOATBUILDING, I JUST NATURALLY WENT AND BEGAN WORKING WITH MY FATHER. AND I'VE BEEN WORKING WITH MY FATHER EVER SINCE '89. SO IT'S BEEN A NATURAL PROGRESSION THROUGHOUT THE YEARS OF JUST A FAMILY FOLLOWING IN ONE ANOTHER'S FOOTSTEPS. gtgt Erica MUST BE NICE HAVING YOUR OFFICE, THE BOATHOUSE, RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM WHERE YOU LIVE, ISN'T IT gtgt YEAH, IT SAVES A LOT WHEN I'M COMMUTING TO WORK.
DON'T HAVE MUCH OF A GAS BILL. gtgt ERICA SO YOUR SON BOUGHT THIS BOAT THAT YOUR DAD BUILT FOR SOMEONE 40 YEARS AGO. gtgt YEAH. gtgt Erica THAT'S PRETTY INCREDIBLE. gtgt YEAH, HE BOUGHT IT FROM THE ORIGINAL OTHER THAN. THE ORIGINAL OWNER KEPT IT THE WHOLE 40 42, 43 YEARS. I'M GETTING READY TO START PUTTING THE STERN POSTS IN SO THAT WHEN WE COME ON BACK WITH THE SIZE, WE'LL HAVE SOMETHING TO PLANK THE SIZE UP TO. gtgt MY FATHER BUILT BOATS. HE BUILT THEM IN THE BACKYARD.
AND I WAS THE OLDEST OF FOUR BROTHERS, SO I HAD TO END UP HELPING HIM. I JUST SAW HOW IT WAS DONE BY WATCHING HIM, HELPING HIM, AND I JUST TRIED IT ON MY OWN, AND THAT'S THE WAY I GOT STARTED. gtgt GROWING UP ON AN ISLAND, BEING FROM HARKERS ISLAND, BOATS IS A WAY OF LIFE, BECAUSE EVERYBODY AND HIS BROTHER HAD A BOAT. THEY LIVED IN THE WATER, STAYED IN THE WATER, AND A LOT OF YOUR FOOD COME FROM THE WATER. SO BOATS WAS A THAT WAS A BIG THING FOR EVERYBODY ON THE.
ISLAND. AND GROWING UP HERE, I'VE BEEN AROUND BOATS EVER SINCE I WAS IN DIAPERS. gtgt Erica WHAT ABOUT THIS BOAT YOU ALL ARE WORKING ON NOW WHAT'S THE STORY gtgt THIS IS ONE THAT WE'RE REFINISHING FOR A GUY. HE LIVES IN RALEIGH, BUT HE'S FROM THE ISLAND. THEY BROUGHT IT TO US. THEY JUST HAD THE HULL OF A BOAT AND BASICALLY JUST A SHELL. AND NOW WE'RE FIBERGLASSING THE STUFF THAT WE'RE PUTTING ONTO HER. AND I THINK THEY WANT US TO GO AHEAD AND FINISH THE OLD, ROUGH.
BOAT INSIDE AND GET HER READY FOR RUNNING. gtgt I MEAN, I STARTED THERE, THE ONLY THING I HAD WAS A BANDSAW AND DIDN'T HAVE ELECTRIC PLANE OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. IT WAS MOSTLY ALL THAT STUFF WAS DONE BY HAND. gtgt FOR A FAMILY TO BE DOING IT FOR AS LONG AS THEY HAVE, I RECKON WE HAVE LEFT A LITTLE BIT OF A LEGACY ON THE ISLAND. I MEAN, A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOWS US, AND THE FIRST BOAT I EVER BUILT IS STILL WHERE I AM.
Boat Building on the Cape
For me, building a boat is a lot like raising a child. You do the best job you can with the tools you have, and if you work diligently, everything works out. We jut out in the North Atlantic Ocean about 30 miles. So, boats played a big role in everything that people have done here on Cape Cod throughout history. So it's been important to us economically and it's also a source of pride. We, all of us, whether we're directly involved, as I am in the boat business or not, are on.
This unusual, even unique place with some unusual skills and craftsman, which is something you can't say in other parts of the country. One of the great things about boat building is that we're able to draw upon proven designs and proven techniques from our own boating experiences and incorporate that into the boats that we're building today. Our boats are special, they're unique, they're handcrafted. And they have a soul. They're built by our team, our crew with extreme care and a lot of love. The end result is, of course, to satisfy the client. Fortunately, for I think anybody who.
Is in the business of naval architecture there is a tremendous amount of satisfaction for one's self if the boat looks good, goes fast and gets the owner the places he always dreamed of going. My wife always kids me. To me, the best perfume would be something that smelled like sanded old varnish. There are smells, tarred marline, sanded varnish, the smell of fresh paint when you walk into the shop after something has been painted. The cedar dust in the air, the smell of mahogany, the black stain that comes on your hand from working with honduras mahogany.
