1958, Mr. R. K. Davis, an area tugboat owner, founded Davis Boat Works.
Initially, Davis Boat Works started as a business to complement his
tugboat company's repairs. However, after realizing the need for better
repair servicing needs for area commercial boat companies and fishing
boats, R. K. Davis expanded its operations to offer the area one of its
first complete boat repair facilities.
R. K. Davis’ death, the company was then run by Mrs. Janet Davis Mayhew
and her husband Mr. T. O. Mayhew for several decades. Over this span of
time, the Mayhews helped solidify Davis Boat Works’ reputation for
producing quality ship repair work. In 1996, Davis Boat Works was
purchased by Mr. F. W. Wagner.
humble beginnings in 1958, Davis Boat Works has serviced thousands of commercial boats and
vessels for various kinds of repair, fabrication, and alteration needs. In
addition to the work provided for commercial clients, Davis Boat Works has
