David Baker Marine
Superb Service
David has been working on my boats for years-mechanical work, electrical repairs, tune ups on my diesel engine, oil changes, etc-all dockside. He's always done great job and delivered on time! His mobile repair services make it so easy for boat owners! by Joan B.

Tint World
Very Professional!
I've now had Tint World do windows in my boat & 2 vehicles, at 2 of their locations; Boynton Beach & West Palm Beach. I don't write a lot of reviews, but I really appreciated the extra time they took to make sure I had the right product for what I needed, instead of just trying to sell me on the most expensive service. The quality of work is great, they are very professional, & I will definitely use them again. They also offer detailing and electronics products, & while I have various companies I use, I'll probably get some quotes from them in the future. by Bill T. in LAKE WORTH, FL

Miramar Canvas & Upholstery
Over promised under delivered
Roger is not the guy for your boat repairs. He will not deliver in a timely fashion, nor answer calls or texts... He has had over 3 weeks to do what should have taken a week. by peter p. in SAN DIEGO, CA
Smith & Wick Marine Diesel
Smith Wick Marine Service is no good
I would not hire them. I got over charged and lied to. Quote was half of what the final bill was. Never was i told that there would be any increase. Also the job took several days longer because the first mechanic did not complete job and caused major diesel leaks. They damaged my yacht and caused major damage. This is my opinion and would never hire this company. Find another company to work on your engines. Again Smith & Wick is not reputable in my opinion. Charlie Smithwick is not to be trusted in my opinion. by Lou L. in PORT SALERNO, FL
So Cal Auto Sound
Better sound than I thought possible!
I had these guys do a sound system update on my boat. I thought I just wanted a new stereo and some new speakers, but wow, what they came up with really exceeded my expectations. They set it up with three separate zones, each with it's own volume control, a sub in each area, and although I don't throw any parties, I could start a nightclub on it now! Even on the way to Catalina with the engines going and the wind, we can hear the music loud and crystal clear. These guys know what they're doing! by David S. in NEWPORT BEACH, CA
Seabreeze Canvas & Upholstery
Sea Breeze canvas
Tony did a full enclosure on my yacht I'm very happy with the quality and attention to details. Ann. San Pedro, Ca by ana v. in LONG BEACH, CA
