Each year at the Carolina Boat Builders Tournament we honor a boat builder, and this year we are pleased to announce we will be honoring Craig Blackwell of Blackwell Boatworks. In 1986 Craig went into business for himself. For three years he primarily worked in repair and in 1988 he established Blackwell Boatworks. In the years since, he has built over sixty sportfishing boats ranging from 28’ – 72’, from the very simple charter boat to the very elaborate yacht. Shown here is one of his favorites, Jesus Freak. An article will be written about Craig and added to our website with the other boatbuilders who have been honored in the past. Check it out at http://dcbbf.org/our-mission/dare-co-boat-builders/
