About Us

CJ Krause

CJ owns and operates Final Finish Boat Works.  His passion for boats started, growing up on and around Lake Geneva and working with Jerry’s Marine.  He’s earned a business degree from the University of Wisconsin – Stout, and worked in corporate business upon graduating.  Tired of corporate politics, and looking to branch out from big business, CJ purchased Final Finish Boat Works in 2019. Since he took over, he has strived to provide outstanding customer service on each and every project. He personally works with all insurance companies to get repairs covered.  If you have a personal project, he’s willing to provide options to work within your budget and make every dollar stretch to get you back on the water.

Shop Crew

Jose & Troy work hard in the shop on every boat.  They do it all, from buffing and waxing to major structural repairs.  Jose has been in the marine construction and repair industry for decades.  He was producing all of the hulls coming out of the Thunder Boats factory when they were located in the Chicagoland area and has been working at Final Finish Boat Works for nearly two decades.  Oscar and Troy work under the direction of CJ and Jose making sure projects are completed in a timely manner.
