Business Details

In business since the early 1990s, I (Brett Gorke) began working in Oceanside Harbor under the wing of Master Shipwright Dennis Sterling doing jobs that most would walk away from. Dennis & I began to get so many referals together that we decided to start our own business formerly known as the SHIP SHAPE SHIP SHOP. Over the coarse of 5 or so years we had done every imaginable thing there was to do in fiberglass or wood, from making fiberglass molds to custom interior work & cabinets & transom extensions! We're talking adding 4' to 6' to the length of a boat! We soon moved north to L.A. Harbor where we rented a shop on the water at Berth 55 & began to move into the comercial market working for many tug boat companies, Cruise ships, & the Movie industry. Dennis moved into semi retirement & I moved my portion of the shop to my house in Costa Mesa. I currently work on both commercial & private vessels.

Brett did an amazing job with my hardwood flooring, cabinets & laminate counter tops. He also repaired my dinged up swimstep so that it looks perfect. He was prompt, professional & priced right. I highly recommend him!
