Dry Out Restorations
Flood and Mold Damage!!!
Dry out arrived at my home at approximately 2:30 am. they came and immediately dried the whole first floor of my house. As they were drying the floors the team discovered a leak In my wall when the removed the baseboards. The leak was causing mold to grow in my walls.The overall experience of working with with dry out was excellent. They were super courteous and professional. They took care of the flood immediately for me and also handled the mold growing in my walls. I really appreciated the fact that Bob sent a technician every day to check the equipment to make sure it was working properly. The job started on 12/12 and ended today 12/14. by EmilyG in miami, fl
Diesel Systems, LLC
These guys are the worst mechanics in the business
I spent thousands of dollars with Kevin twice. I was up sold having work done that likely was not needed. Both times I had mechanical failures the next time I used our boat. The mechanical failures left me with one egine down....leaving us in a potentially dangerous situation. Do not use these guys...they are not good people. I have to say once I found the right mechanics (not Kevin's guys). My engines are now smoke free, sound awesome and work every time we turn the key. Moral of the story. Don't work with Diesel System. by MichaelTAllen in seattle, wa
Thomas Marine Systems, Inc.
Worst in the industry stay away
If you have a problem they will not solve it. If you need something done in a timely fashion they will not do it. What they will do is waste your time not offer an apology. And never show up. The people who work the phones are masters at passing you along. Kevin the service guy is the king of excuses. There are a lot of companies in Fort Lauderdale so when you make a choice pick anyone other than these morons. by JeffCl in fort lauderdale, fl
Banyan Bay Marine Center
Outstanding fiberglass department
I have refit many boats over the years. I recently refit my 18 maverick and banyan bay did an outstanding job. it could not have turned out better and the savings were considerable compared other places. I would definitely recommend Banyan bay to anyone needing boating assistance. by johnGa01 in fort lauderdale, fl

Tuff Trailer
These guys definitely build a Tuff Trailer
I can not say enough about how well they treat their customers. From my first contact with William Bowes to the day I picked up my trailer they made me feel like their number 1 customer. William was very patient with my multitude of question and took the time to educate me on boat trailers. They trailer looks amazing and tows great behind my Ford F150. I highly recommend Tuff Trailer their product, people and service are the best I have had in a long time. by SteveS05 in lake stevens, wa
Advanced Marine Service
Best Evinrude Outboard Mechanics in Orange County
Whenever I have any problems, Advanced Marine Service is my "go-to" resource. They're great outboard mechanics & can handle any marine electrical problem, gas engine or sterndrive issues. I have an Evinrude Ficht outboard that was over heating & no other marine mechanic could diagnose it. David resolved it in a day. The shop is in Costa Mesa right off of Newport Blvd. and convenient to Newport Beach and Huntington Beach. by hbboatlover in huntington beach, ca
Looks like new!
These guys did a great job on my boston whaler. I was thoroughly impressed. It was a 2 day project and they cleaned and painted the whole boat. Highly highly recommend. They've been in business many years and this is the third time Ive used them. Wendy manages the operation and the company was superb by ScottF04 in newport beach, ca
