Vinton Unlimited welcomed Downstream Resto and Repair with a ribbon cutting on Saturday. Present for the ribbon cutting were (pictured left to right) Andrew Elwick of Elwick Electric, Shannon and Bryan Krough, Melody Snow of Vinton Unlimited, Cyanne Boggess and Phil Borlesky.

As most small businesses do, Downstream Resto and Repair began as a hobby. It started with fixing up a single boat, just to make it look better. The work that Bryan Krough began was in an unheated garage in North Liberty. Then along came Dale Henry to lend a hand. The lack of heat hampered the repairs and it took a year to finish that first boat. The two secured a garage in Vinton at the old Remington Seed plant. The next boat only took a month to complete. Perhaps they were on to something!

Specializing in restoring boats and making them beautiful again the two men can make your boat into something you've dreamed of, but maybe just haven't had the time to complete. They can add lights, a flag pole, flooring, detail the outside and they can install whatever you've had sitting in the garage that was meant for your boat. Maybe you have an awesome new seat but you just haven't had time to pop it into the boat...just a reminder that fishing season is just about upon us! Krough has the time and ability to help you out. Your boat is only limited by your imagination. Order away and bring the goods to Krough to trick out your boats! (contact information is in the photos, so scroll through)

With the new location remodeled to create more space, feel free to stop out and tell them what you'd like to have done! Krough said that if there is something that he can't do, he would be sure to tell you that. So bounce your ideas off of him and make your plans. The business also has fishing accessories available for sale that include various baits and jigs.

The business is located at 1503 West D St. Turn off of Hwy 218 onto D St. it is the road just past Kerry and before you get to P.A.M.S. Storage. Follow the lane to the first building on your left.
