We were there May last year, called them on a Tuesday morning when we got cell service
had a sail drive freeze up on us near Shark River. After sailing through bridge 5 tried sailing north in 20+ knot head
winds in hawk channel no good. Had towboat us tow us to Key Largo
. They had 4 guys there well after dark and closing time to tie us up in the lifting slip, slept on the boat right there. In the am they pulled us right away and were on the hard
by 9:00 am. Had a friend bring a new sail drive down from St Pete. After a trip to West Marine
for mics items we started at 10 am. Had new drive and engine
back in by 6:00 that evening. Unfortunately if we had finished an hour earlier we could have splashed the same day. Because they didn't have any other boats coming or going they per our request left the lift
right over the boat. Saved a couple of hours..... Spashed the next morning Thusday, tied up at friends home at crash corner washed the boat left at 10:00 am, for gulf stream
crossing...arrived in Cat island befor dark....
They were great at helping us with our time schedule, if they had delayed us our window for the crossing would have been a full week later.
There were no extra expenses for the services provided.. the only item was pressure washing
the bottom they require when you pull. Could have done without, but they do that for the benefit of others...could be smelly for your neighbors.
I can not speak for there work as we DIY but the service
we received was excellent.
