Key Largo Harbor Marina

I am not one to normally write a review unless the service is outstanding or an all-out scam. In this case Key Largo Harbor Marina falls into the latter classification of an all-out scam. I caution anyone from doing any business with this place. I had my 47í sailboat here February of 2017 this year and received a quote from this marina for a bottom sanding, priming and two coats of Micron 60. They were very accommodating would bend over backwards for you up until you dropped the boat off and then things changed.The attached pictures show before and after shots of the keel. The after shots were taken 24 hours later after the boat was lifted out in another marina. It is clear the keel was never sanded or primed. Now the cost to fix is $1,700. Thatís after paying $2400 to key largo harbor marina. They also charged me an extra $150 for sanding the keel. On top of all of this they somehow managed to break through the gel coat on the keel. Another $900 to repair this. I have tried to reach this business to discuss making this right and they have never returned my phone calls or emails. My attorney as well sent a notice and they failed to even respond to that.**WARNING: STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.**
