(AKA Sea Island Boat Builders, Sea Island Boatworks, and Sea Island Boatwrights)

Mark has been interested in building boats since he graduated from high school. Growing up around Shem Creek in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, he was drawn to want to build shrimp boats. With limited opportunities to build shrimp boats, he began studying boat building at Cape Fear Tech. Mark began his boat building odyssey by working in several boat yards in Virginia, Panama City, and the Charleston area. Mark has built over 100 wooden boats (many of which are seen on this web site) and rebuilt, repaired, and restored countless other boats.
