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.
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 25+ years, he has provided educational services at several antique/classic boat museums across the country presenting on the history of the Lyman Boat Works.
Since 1997, this website and online catalog have been the leading place to go for all your Lyman Boat restoration parts and supplies. Our online Lyman Boat Repair and Restoration Question and Answer page recently migrated to social media and is a great resource as well, promoting the preservation of Lyman Boats and serving the interests of owners throughout the world. We also provide an extensive listing of Lyman Boats for sale, historical documentation and memorabilia, and officially trademarked Lyman apparel and accessories.

Lyman Boat Beer Works
The Lyman Boat Works was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1875 and later moved its factory to Sandusky, Ohio where it called home for many decades. These wooden lapstrake "Clinker-Built" Lymans have stood the test of time and are known for their craftsmanship, utility, family values, and of course seaworthiness in rough water. Founded in 2016, Lyman Boat Beer Works, stands to build on this tradition and is in the planning stages of opening a Lyman Boat historical themed craft brewery and taproom honoring the history and tradition that embodies the Lyman brand and showcasing the vast array of original Lyman archives owned and used by our family's Lyman restoration business. Our beer in currently brewed at Sibling Revelry Brewing Company in Westlake, Ohio.
