Number Boat on Lake George with Tumblehome Boatshop

Historic Craftsmanship

Reuben Smith's Tumblehome Boatshop is focused on the high‐end restoration and new construction of historic and classic wooden boats.

Welcome to Reuben Smith's Tumblehome Boatshop

Fay & Bowen Restorations

A 1916 33' Fay & Bowen torpedo stern launch and a 26' Junior Runabout are getting some much-needed attention at Tumblehome. These boats will relaunch this year on Lake George after full structural restorations and with period Fay & Bowen engines. More >

Electric Launches in the Boatshop

Two (very) different electric powered boats are in the boatshop right now getting full structural restorations: a 1935 Electri-Craft and a c.1890s fantail launch (originally a naptha boat).  More >

In the Boathouse at Tumblehome

The great Gold Cup raceboat "El Lagarto," returns to the Adirondack Museum shortly but is still on exhibit in the Boathouse. "Stella Blue," the Tumblehome 24 custom speedboat we built and launched last year, is stationed next to the craft that inspired her. More >
