Welcome to Reuben Smith's Tumblehome Boatshop

A Show Winner!

"Fanita Jr.," a 1916 32-ft Fay & Bowen torpedo stern launch, just won Best of Show in the Power Boat/Professional Restoration class at the 2016 WoodenBoat Show in Mystic Seaport. This very special grande dame of Lake George turns 100 this year.  More >

Sound Inter Club in the Boatshop

We're embarking on the 3rd restoration of a 1926 Sound Inter Club racing class sloop. This boat, "Aileen," will be restored to the standards of "Caprice," and "Ghost," the two other Sound Inter Clubs we restored, such that the three boats are essentially equal as a class. More >

"Echo," the 1926 Fay & Bowen on loan from the Adirondack Museum, has arrived at the Boathouse. We also have two exquisite Fay & Bowen engines on exhibit, as well.  More >
