Calypso Bottom Restoration
Details: Bottom paint restoration. Strip Barrier coat: Anti-Fouling.
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…
Last year, my wife and I bought our 1982 Swan 391 on the Great Lakes and sailed her to the east coast. Getting the boat into Chesapeake Bay was a first step in pursuing the dream of some extended cruising. As a budget-conscious boat owner, I do the work that I can myself, but we needed some professional help and I can’t speak highly enough of my experience with Tom, Matt and the Diversified team.
The initial work I contracted was simply to remove the old (fresh water) bottom paint and barrier s…
We wanted you to know how pleased we are with the work Matt Jones has done on our Privilege catamaran. We purchased it two years ago with plan to go cruising this fall after having accomplished as many refits as necessary. This was a little extra touch but, I’m sure it will bring lots of return, a lovely place to work and a joy to see. From the our first contact with you regarding an estimate, our working relationship has been a pleasure. Many affairs concerning boats can be frustr…
I must tell you that the service you provided me was exemplary. I have owned a lot of boats and dealt with many yards and contractors; and the experience I had with you was top shelf. I greatly appreciate it… and when I am back on the water will always keep you in mind.
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,…
I have Selene 48′ trawler. The Taiwanese carpenters are hard to match. But, I think Matt may just have given them some competition. He took a sample of our drawer front and matched it to perfection. That wasn’t an easy task with all the fine detail. He was even able to match the Ebony inlay on the cabinet top. His measurements were perfect and the cabinet fits beautifully. You know how…boats have more angles than geometry.
We had a time deadline of heading South. Matt made that deadline, workin…
My 1996 J/105 had a badly oxidized gel coat, faded decks and several small cracks in the fiberglass decking. I hired Diversified Marine to perform this major restoration for several reasons:
- Quality workmanship: Diversified Marine took the time to lay out his process to restore the boat in detail. It became evident to me that DMS would not take any shortcuts that would lead to a sub-standard job. Throughout the restoration, Tom immediately addressed anything he felt could compromise the end pr…
Mario did a first class job installing the new rudder on my boat. He was knowledgeable, tireless, and determined to do a perfect fit. There was a minor setback with some fiberglass that refused to harden but your staff rose to the situation, replaced the questionable patch, delayed the launch, and finished the project at full speed. I am pleased with the results and you are welcome to use me as a reference if you have a future customer with a similar project.
Please express my thanks to Mario…
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‘m writing this letter to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to Matt Jones and Diversified Marine Services Inc., in Annapolis, Maryland for the attention they gave us, their response time, and the professionalism shown with respect to some recent boat repairs.
Our Formica galley countertop had begun to delaminate and despite my attempts, refused to be re-adhered. Some of the aft closet frames had also begun to warp and crack, and we noticed some fiberglass cracks developing in the af…
