John Moes

John Moes is an integral Moes team member, past and present. He began working in the boatyard as a child, starting out screwing fasteners from the inside of boats, cutting blocks and mopping grease on skid rails, and he’s worked full-time at Moes since 1971. His expert craftsmanship and attention to detail upholds the Moes standard.

Little-known facts about John: he attended and played basketball at The University of Rhode Island, and he extensively competed in canoe races in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s. Also, in his youth, he built a 1960 Chris-Craft Pram with his dad and brother, Tom, where he remembers “spending days like Huck Finn going up and down the river.”
