Purchased in 1994, Wolf Creek has been family owned and operated by 3 generations of Romeys. We have maintained the historic integrity while renovating, restoring and repairing the facility to its former original condition. This alone is a full time job that we do to protect and maintain the last piece of fully functioning industrial equipment of the era in the Hollis  and Kasaan area of Prince of Wales Island. All the mines, logging yards and canneries are gone now and only Wolf Creek Boatworks remain.


Since the early years of the boat works, 1939, the focus has been on a local facility where boat owners can come and have a boat repaired or even built. There's a grid where boaters can have their boats cleaned, or even just borrow the space to clean their own boat. 

Historic Wolf Creek Boatworks is no longer a commercial business because it has not been able to acquire the land the buildings sit on. Currently the Mental Health Trust is attempting to force a unrealistic lease that is not sustainable for a Non Profit historic site. While trying to come to an agreement with the Mental Health Trust, Wolf Creek Boatworks has continued to preserve, protect and repair the site without the help of the resources Mental Heath Trust agreed to in the land swap.

The original equipment still runs in the boat works and sharing that experience has always been a highlight at Wolf Creek. 

You're welcome to stop and by and see how SE Alaskans have been building, repairing, and maintaining boats for over 80 years.
