J. A. G. Yacht Painting
AFTER A NASTY ALTERCATION WITH A POST IN THE LA HARBOR I TOOK MY BOAT TO SHELTER ISLAND BOAT YARD WHERE I'D HAD SOME WORK DONE 2.5 YEARS AGO. I WAS SO PLEASED WITH THEM THEN, I DECIDED TO BRING MY BOAT BACK. THIS TIME THE WORK WAS FAR MORE EXTENSIVE AND THE WHOLE BOAT HAD TO BE REPAINTED. JAG/GORDO DID A TOP NOTCH JOB. Gordo, the co-owner of the company, went over and above the call of duty showing great pride in his workmanship and delivering my boat back to me in better than new condition!! Great job JAG!! by bob l. in RANCHO PALOS VERDES, CA

High Tech Marine Surveys
No Followup
It's difficult to write a negative review about someone who is in a position to keep you from ever selling your boat, but Pat Goodrow was paid in full for a survey of my boat on the day he inspected it. I received a report that evening by e-mail, but he never followed up with a report on the thermal imaging of my carbon fiber mast. The reason I employed Pat, rather than a local surveyor, was for his thermal imaging skills and equipment. Two months and half a dozen requests later, I have not received a written report and I expect that I never will. by Loren L. in WALLINGFORD, CT

Waited over 7 weeks for the owner, John Lane to send someone to repair a generator on my boat. Promised me the world, Never Delivered. Would NEVER recommend him to anyone by Robert F. in FORKED RIVER, NJ
Gagnon's Boats & Motors Inc.
The worst experience ive ever had with any company
Do yourself a favor and stay far away from this business. Nothing but lies and false promises.i will never go back just wish i had known before i purchased my new pontoon boat. by Donald P. in CUSHING, ME
Brothers Marine Canvas
Brothers Marine Canvas
I was reffered to this company by one of my friends who used them. They came out and gave me a good price on a enclosure for my boat. We met again and I upgraded the materials and gave them a deposit. Big mistake, I have been trying to reach these guys and they do not answer there e-mails or phones. Know they also have my cushions and a bolt of fabric that I gave them to make some curtain. No answer, no show, nothing. I'm giving them one more week. I hope they return my call before then.

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
