Not to worry if you can’t join us at the boatshed, we understand that recent events can make it difficult to make it down. As part of our commitment to providing proactive service to our customers, we can send you a comprehensive report complete with photos of the maintenance service from start to finish. If you prefer minimal disruption to your daily routine, we go the extra mile by picking and dropping off your boat to and from our slipway at your convenience.
