One-of-a-kind steamboat ships.

Who I am

My Story

My name is George Merrill, and I’m a former teacher and coach of 35 years at Hanover Public Schools. I’ve reinvented myself at age 70 and am now a juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen since 2019. I work in mixed media using barn salvage and antiques to create unique sculptures, currently specializing in side paddle steamboats. Due to the fragile nature of my sculptures, I cannot ship them at this time. However, you can make an appointment to see them in person or find me at many of the Art and Craft festivals around NH.

Sculpting ships is my passion. I have built over 80 ships of various sizes using salvaged materials. Explore my collection below.
