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…
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.…
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…
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…
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…
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!
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…
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…
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…
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…
