Snake River Wooden Boats, Incorporated, was formed in 2007 to design and build small (less than 18 feet) hand crafted canoes and kayaks for recreational boaters.  These boats are built of a wood / fiberglass / epoxy composite producing a strong, durable product that enhances the natural beauty of the wood used.  In addition to their strength and durability, wooden boats tend to be lighter than boats built of other materials.
Curt Molten: Company President and Boat Builder
In the early 70’s I served an apprenticeship as a Shipfitter at Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company in Newport News, Virginia.  As a Shipfitter Apprentice, I learned the art of lofting and the skill of ship fabrication and construction.  For the next 25 years I worked for NNS&DD as an Estimator, Production Controller, Hull Design Engineer, and later in Management, building/repairing aircraft carriers and submarines for the U. S. Navy.  Along the way I earned an undergraduate and masters degree in Civil Engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute.  In parallel to my shipbuilding career, I have developed a skill in designing and building wooden furniture and other household items.
