Episode #022 Forrester Boatworks

 On This Week's Episode

On today’s episode of Along The Keel, I speak with Carson Forrester of Forrester Boatworks. Located in Suffolk Virginia, Carson builds custom boats, focusing mostly on skiffs and smaller vessels. Growing up, Carson spent summers in the Manteo, North Carolina an area where some of the most well-known boat builders call home. He would later become a captain and build a career in the sport fishing industry while simultaneously working as a fireman. It wasn’t a matter of if he would dip his toes into the boat building world, but only a matter of when. Carson has been fortunate to have family working at Buddy Davis and his career in the sport fishing community gave him a wealth of knowledge to start what has now become Forrester Boatworks.
