Calypso Bottom Restoration
Details: Bottom paint restoration. Strip Barrier coat: Anti-Fouling.
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…
Tom Kicklighter and his team at Diversified Marine did a wonderful job helping us refurbish our 1986 Cambria 44/46. On the exterior, we had the hull painted, the teak decks repaired, and the exterior cabin house detailed. On the interior, we had the cabins painted, the head liner detailed, new fans installed, and port holes resealed. We also had an electric winch installed.We hired Tom and his team because of their reputation for quality work and excellent customer service. Diversified Marine…
Last fall my 1997 Gemini 105M was struck by lightning. Almost everything electrical was damaged, and the electronics were fried. Frank Hoot came on board, assessed the damage, developed a plan and executed it perfectly.
Not only was he able to identify the lightning problems, he identified and correct electrical issues carried over from the manufacturer. He brought the boat up to current ABYC standards. This was all done as part of the plan. He also helped me deal with an extremely difficult ve…
One seldom encounters a business dedicated to superb quality of work, coupled with on-time performance at a fair price. Diversified Marine Service is such a company.
With a three week trip out of town, FROLIC was hauled in August for some minor gel coat repair and an awlgrip paint job. The deep luster of the flag blue paint is phenomenal.
We could not be more pleased.
While returning from New England in July, 2014 on our Sabre 42 Express powerboat, “SHIBUMI”, we experienced significant fiberglass and gelcoat damage while attempting to enter a marina on the Mannesquan River in NJ during a heavy current in the midst of a violent thunderstorm.
Upon returning to Annapolis, we interviewed several marine contractors, including Tom Kicklighter of Diversified Marine Services , requesting bids to repair the boat. Within a couple of days, Tom had examined the boat and…
Just returned from the Marina to look at the follow up job on my boat. Wow! Job well done! Another satisfied customer. I must say it has been awhile since I have dealt with a company of your caliber. You have been awesome to deal with since day one! Your reviews definitely spoke the truth!

October 2016 Project
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.
“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…
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.…
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…
