Reuban Smith’s Tumblehome Boatshop.
Reuban Smith opened up his doors to his own business about 10 years ago, and it’s been full throttle since then. Reuban is very well known and loved up in the Lake George area. And the boatshop is way over the top cool. Its a combination of a wonderful clean workshop, and ascetically perfect
On top of restoring and preserving some very historic boats, Reuban also builds new ones including his own brand.
Tumblehome Boatshop Is a classic boat milieu in which you can bask in all that is wonderful about our culture. Okay, okay, that was a rather thick sentence. Sorry. I need a rest after that one. So here are some photos of the shop.. FEEL THE AAAAMBIENCE.
YOU CAN VISIT REUBAN SMITH’S TUMBLEHOME BOATSHOP HERE
Reuben what an amazing shop and BEAUTIFUL boats!
Matt: Again I want to compliment you on this series. It is such a positive look at our hobby/lifestyle/addiction in comparison to whining about needing younger people to get involved. They are out there, we just need to get to know them!
Troy said that so well, I’ll just second that!
What great skills to be blessed with.
That is one very large boat shop. I think it even beats Jimmy’s barn. Congrats to Reuban on a successful business that supports what we all love!
Best series ever! But, please do not limit your articles to the NE or NW. There are some very talented artists, some not so young, in the middle of our land.
I am open to meet them.
Agreed: Best series ever. Act young: Follow all of them on Instagram.
Reuben Smith, Matt Smith, Chris Smith.
Are you guys all related?
Reuben: On another note, I LOVE the sandwich that was named after you. Especially when it involved Haddock.
Yes Instagram is where they all market. I am still searching foe west coaters, Fitzke is in Minn, I have also reached out to companies that have Young guns that work at the shops. This series is gonna still go strong.
Would you want an update on an amateur restoration done by a “young gun” of my 1963 Coronado?
Have been VERY busy over the past week. Have not had time to read WB, let alone comment. This morning I took the time to read all the young guns series. How cool! Great articles on talented people with good pictures. It is good to see young talented people working hard to preserve boating history, Keep up the good work. Thanks Matt.
Great shop, great series, great people…thanks for this.

oh lordie! Seeing this Eric Zelman is going to be tempted to upsize his shop so as to keep fiberglassics on an even keel with this over the top place…..fight the urge…do the U22….

Matt, thanks for the plug! …Where should we send the money? And yes, the flowers were for a Shop Talk, but hey. What goes better with boats than flowers (and maybe cocktails).
Hoping to start up our public events again soon, and our exhibit space is always open … so stop by next time you’re in the Adirondacks or near Lake Champlain.
What beautiful boats and a gorgeous shop (flowers or not!)
It certainly is fascinating how shops can be immaculate, well-thought out clean rooms or cluttered messes of tools and parts, and yet both can produce such stunning works of artistic and engineering perfection!
