What type of work are you having done? We spent a long time in that boatyard and have some opinions.

For the painting and blisters they do alright, but as other people said, you have to stay ontop of them all the time. We had them paint our bottom and some blister repair, but they skipped a lot of the little steps that should be taken.

when we took boat outta the water in Ca. we searched and grounded out blisters (just 3-4 quarter size) to dry out on trip across all they have to do is fill em and paint bottom... should i just do repairs and paint bottom and just have them splash it in???

My only experience with them was work on my diesel which they subbed out to another mechanic.

There is also Schubert's Marine as well as Mayer Yachts in West End (about six miles west of SeaBrook).

Re: "Lost Cajun" Made It To New Orleans And Wondering About Seabrook Boatyard Service

Seabrook does all the work on out large powerboat, and while they do a reasonable job there is nothing about their work that is outstanding.

Sintes does much better work, and Steve is a sailor at heart. He does most of the racing boat bottoms, and does very good work. Of course they are a bit more expensive generally.

Schuberts are terrible. I would never go back
Meyers again terrible, and the work performed doesn't always line up with the work charged for.

If you need or want really high quality work then you have to go to Dauphin Island in Alabama. To a place called Divirsified Marine (speak with Donnie Brennon). They are most defiantly not the cheapest, but are one of the highest quality yards in the country. Donnie's temp job is working as the Boatwright for the US Olympic Sailing Team.

Sounds like you have enough feedback on Seabrook so I'll just say "have a great time in New Orleans"! Don't miss music on Frenchmen St. We highly recommend John Boutte at dba Sat at8pm, Kermit Ruffins at Blue Nile 7pm Fridays and if you get a chance catch up with Trombonne Shorty, Sunpie and Mia Borders.
