I want to take a few minutes to say thank you for the excellent job in painting Equinox, our Sabre 362 sailboat. From start to finish, you have been wonderful to work with. Your ideas concerning scheduling and colors have been perfect.You have constantly kept us informed with progress notes and photos. The final bill is exactly on estimate with extra work that you kindly performed without fee. Best of all the boat turned out magnificent. We’re delighted with the high quality of the work!…
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…
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…
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‘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…
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,…
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…
Thanks for working with me Tom! You’re a good man and wish you the best in the new year! I also enjoyed talking with you yesterday. I wish I had the passion and drive you do. You created a great company with integrity and high quality standards. I would like to shake hands some day! Best wishes!!
Scope of service: Winterization of all shipboard systems / Yamaha maintenance / Shrink wrap winter protection
Not only am I extremely impressed with your service and technical skills (including Brook’s), but your integrity is impeccable.
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…
