Hacker Craft

Craftsman Jon Brennan applies a layer of marine plywood to the battens and deck frame of a boat under construction at Hacker-Craft in Ticonderoga Tuesday, January 8, 2012. Each boat takes about a year and 1,500 - 2000 hours of labor to build. The current facility allows the company to have about 20 boats, with a maximum length of 33-feet, in various stages of construction. A planned move to a new facility in Queensbury will enable the manufacturer to build more boats and expand the maximum length to 45-feet. (Jason McKibben - jmckibben@poststar.com)
