- Awlgrip Application
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…
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 and his team at Diversified Marine did a fantastic job helping me refurbish my 1984 Hunter 34. The boat’s ports and windows were cracked and leaking and the whole boat needed painting. Tom’s team worked with me to replace all the ports and windows and made the boat look brand new with an AWLGRIP paint job.Tom was in constant contact keeping me updated on the progress. After the boat was finished, several folks in my marina asked if I had gotten a new boat after I returned to my slip and…
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…
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 must say that DMS has been at the top of its game this launch season. Very satisfied customer.
Thanks so much for doing everything you can to get me on the water. You’ve been fair, reasonable and profoundly helpful. I really appreciate all you’ve done.
This is my 40th season on this boat. We’ve tried to maintain and update it, but even the updates are getting on in years. Nice to know you guys have my back.

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…
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.
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,…
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…
