Lyman Boats LLC
We take great pride in being the home of the original Lyman Boat Works archives, including hull records, blueprints, photographs, patterns, jigs, and tooling all used to build these iconic boats. We serve as the center of excellence for the Lyman brand and the preservation of its history.
Tom Koroknay a.k.a. "Doc Lyman" began restoring Lyman Boats in 1983, purchased the Lyman Boat Works archives and tooling pertaining to wooden boat production in 1988-91, and authored the historical book "Lyman Boats - Legend of the Lakes" published in 2004. Additionally, over the past 30+ years, he has provided educational services at several antique/classic boat museums across the country presenting on the history of the Lyman Boat Works.
