Slip Side Maintenance
“Oyster Stew” is a 1978 Wasque 32. She has an excellent pedigree, but needed some work. The hull, originally painted flag blue in 2000 was in need of freshening. The decks needed to be repainted, and the doghouse was oxidizing. Diversified Marine was able to get me into the schedule and started working on her in December 2010. What started out as basic cosmetics quickly turned into a major project when rot was found in the doghouse.
Tom kept me abreast of the progress through pictures and went…
Dear Tom, I just wanted to send along a testimonial to complement the recent restoration job your group did on my 50″ Cranchi Mediteranee express cruiser.
Matt and the other members of your team did an outstanding job in planning and executing the project which included repairing. prepping and painting the entire hull with Awlgrip. This included some redesign of the paint scheme for the boat and the final results were just beautiful. Our 9-year old boat looks better than it did the day it was d…
The last year has been packed with preparations for the Annapolis to Bermuda Ocean Race. Of course we left the Electronics until the last minute, and I can’t tell you how grateful we are for the hard work you guys did in the last month. You installed our entire RayMarine electronics suite, and the speed and precision with which your team finished the work was remarkable. Our expectations were hugely exceeded!!
Thank you for your customer service, and you will always be our first choic…
Not only am I extremely impressed with your service and technical skills (including Brook’s), but your integrity is impeccable.
Dear Tom,I wanted to thank you for the excellent work Frank and Matt did in installing the new electric winch kit. They look nice, work perfectly, and make such a difference. I also wanted you to know how much I appreciated you and your team going above and beyond to trouble shoot and fix my engine problems so I could leave on my ten week trip to Maine this summer. Diversified Marine is the best!
It is with a very great deal of pleasure that I commend you, Matt and your crew for the superb, eye-catching paint job you accomplished on my 34 year old Ranger 22 “FIREWORKS”. You didn’t just restore her to her glory days, you have eclipsed, by a huge margin, the best she has ever looked, even brand new. It was better bringing her home this time than the very first time I brought her home.
In addition, the way you conduct business completely complements your excellent results. Your c…
I very much appreciate all of the work you and your crew undertook in helping restore Paikea to better-than-new condition. Your professionalism, communication, and work ethic was beyond impressive, and I never had to worry about the outcome of each step of the project. I was particularly pleased with your crew’s uncanny ability to identify problems – and solutions – before I even discovered the issue.
Moreover, the update photos and Facebook posts kept me abreast of each detail even when I coul…
After considering several marine yards for my intended hull upgrades, gathering estimates and comparing the quality of work, I selected Diversified Marine Services, Inc. to undertake Sassafras hull bottom inspection and reconditioning, a new Awlgrip topside color finish, and restoring her teak rub rail and cap rail, an inclusive undertaking keel to toe rail.
I live more than 2,000 miles away and was in contact with Thomas Kicklighter via email with pictures with less than a day’s delay. His tim…
It has been more than a year since you did your fabulous work on Tranquility, my 46 ft. sailboat, and restored her to “new” condition. I was quite impressed that a diver who works on Traquility asked me when I got my new boat. As you know, Tranquility is 17 years old.
The internal work was equally spectacular. I love the Corian countertop and the other woodwork that was done internally.
Just wanted to let you know how much I continue to appreciate the outstanding work that you did.…
I posted this to the SOS Skipper’s forum …… just sharing good experience that I hope others do when they find it. Thanks again. Jim
Here’s some good news: I need to share my experience with this professional run outfit. I’ve had occasion to have them work on my diesel (25hp Universal) several times over the past couple years. Most recently, this past week, I had an issue with a heat exchanger bracket and a stuck pencil zinc. Although they had their techs fully booked for the next two weeks,…
