Service and Satisfaction:
We like to believe we define the words professional and quality. With the same work crew and almost ten years “hands on” experience, there is little we have not seen or done when it comes to minor hull repair to major structural and refinish work. “Like new” is not exactly good enough when we take on a job...better than new is our goal because we know the application of our work experience of over 100 boat projects to each new task delivers better than factory built. There is no question we take great pride in the work we do.

We build hardtops and swim platforms and care for your unique boat from the moment we start. Awlgrip a proven 2 part polyurethane, is a process and finish we apply in circumstances from vast need (core rot) to upgrade for safety and appearance. If taken care of, Awlgrip, will last anywhere from 10 - 20 years. No waxing is needed. It can greatly increase the re-sale value of your boat.

There is now a vast selection of colors to choose from, including unique custom colors.

“Customer service and satisfaction is always first for you and for us.”

The owners of our latest project, a 34 foot Silverton Convertible, were uncertain about the cost effectiveness of a deck to keel overhaul. Reluctant but optimistic they decided in favor of the complete job.

Work to be done on 34 foot Silverton Convertible

“The transformation is just hard to believe. It is a Billy Crystal job: ‘Marvelous.’ Really, from the start, the attitude of Rich and his team was just very positive. Their work is meticulous and it shows in the final delivery. We selected a new cream yellow color for the hull. The boat is better than new and we are confident will return more fun and value than we ever could have anticipated. From start to finish we are extremely satisfied.” - Midge Lau - Owner
