I'm purchasing an older downeast (JC 26) that could use a little facelift. The hull, engines, steering are all good, but I'd like to find someone who could re-do the galley, head, electrical systems, canvas, cushions and some various other wood work on the boat. Normally, I'd want to do it myself or contract out each part individually, but in the interest of saving time and getting it done right, this one might be better handled by a builder. I'd prefer not to ship the boat all the way up to Maine or NH, so, would anyone recommend a builder / finisher in NJ (or NY or CT) that could do this for me?

Thanks,
Ben
