Bottom paint, saildrive service, rudder post stiffness, wax and polish the hull and A/C installed. We left our catamaran in Jan and I returned April 1st to have the boat splashed April 2nd. All went well and on price. The yard contracts out much of the work and I was very pleased with Half-Hitch and MasterCool.

The A/C installation was very professionally completed and daily communication from Mike via email and phone while the installation continued. Claire in the front office was very helpful and arranged additional work on a leaking electric head within a few minutes. I sensed the yard is working on providing quality services for catamaran owners. The travel lift crew was exceptional taking great care to lift and splash the boat without a mark on it. The town of St. Augustine has a lot of history and a fun place to be.

We were hesitant to come in here for two reasons: poor support from the dock and bad currents/wind. However, the staff was great - knew what they were doing and had 3 people out to help. The wind and current were at their worst when we came in but the folks at the marina were proficient and helpful so we came in well and safe. In the morning we got pumped out (included in the charge) and filled with water. Last night we walked the old town knowing that we were tied up in the best place around.

We needed to haul out to replace our sail drive seals. The yard did a good job for us and went the extra mile to make us comfortable living on the hard for a week. Only downside is that we had a few areas that needed touching up on the bottom paint, and they don't allow you to do any painting yourself.

The wind and tide still have to be considered even with the new sea wall. Clean rest rooms. This town has history of course and should be visited at least once.

We needed to have a water pump rebuilt, so we stopped in here. Staff is great; though you won't see them unless you search them out. While we waited for the pump, we had full electric and a very quiet dock. A ten minute dinghy ride to Hurricane Patty's for casual food and a produce market around the corner. A short bike ride to historical St. Augustine. The service work is outsourced to Capt. Ron, who seemed very honest to us.
