Windward Boatworks (maker of the Barnett butterfly and M20 scow)

(Disclosure: I have no vested interest in Windward Boatworks and am not benefiting from this post in any way. Simply sharing my experience with this company)

I have been working on an extensive Barnett butterfly(12ft scow) restoration project for the past year and also recently purchased a second new to me Butterfly scow that is complete and ready to sail after two small fixes. I wanted to mention how pleased I am with the Windward Boat Works company and specifically John Hayashi who owns and operates the company that now builds and support the Barnett line of boats as well as their own M20 scow and various other craft.

I recently contacted John via e-mail about getting a replacement transom drain kit and a new dagger board snubber kit (retains the dagger board in case of knockdown). John returned my e-mail within 20 minutes and through our e-mail correspondence he got everything that I needed figured out and he put the order together and shipped it within about 12 hours of my inquiry. The replacement parts for the boat were very reasonably priced and his service has been impeccable. He has also in the past promptly responded to my many maintenance questions that I have had and gave really good advice on painting options.

If you are ever looking for a small sailboat and want to have a great company that backs their product behind you, I very highly recommend Windward Boat Works or any used Barnett butterfly or 1400. John has a very personal way of doing business and was extremely accommodating treating me like a major customer even though it was only about a $40.00 order.
