We are very excited to say we have the bulk of our break water piles arriving on site over the next week. This means a little quiet on the boat lifts but we should be back to full swing for them from December 4th. Who else is excited to see things moving along?
I wanted to congratulate you on the professional service offered both by Gary (who lifted the boat out), and Justin (who put the boat back in the water). Both men made absolutely sure that the best care was taken during both operations.
Gary was particularly keen to ensure that the new stands were in just the right position on either side of the vessel. Justin made sure that protective plastic sheets protected the freshly painted topsides from the woven lifting strops and also assisted with a warping line so that we could clear the harbour without any dramas. They went out of their way to make certain we had every service needed.
The whole slip area has been significantly improved since my last visit. The new elevated “apron” was clean, flat and a safe platform on which to work. My boat deck was remarkably clean at the end of the stay. It also made it a lot easier to more accurately scribe a waterline mark.
My maintenance crew were pleasantly surprised with the “new’ toilets and washing facilities. We also observed that the washings from scrubbing the hull were being treated rather than directly overflowing into the bay. The high pressure wash down hose worked very well.
I was very relieved that a neighbouring boat owner who was grinding/cutting steel kindly finished earlier on Sunday so that we could paint the topsides without steel dust contamination.
Thank you for a pleasant couple of days on the slip.
I needed the boat supported clear of the ground to allow work under the keel. This was possible with your hydraulic trailer and the hull was well propped and supported so that the 50 knot gusts during the time on the hard were not a problem.
A very satisfactory experience.
I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to Justin and his team at Margate Marina for their support and positive attitude whilst having my boat on the slip for 2 weeks recently. I was really impressed with the new trailer and hardstands purchased recently a real positive moving forward for your business. I highly recommend you guys to anyone looking at slipping their boats and I believe in time to come once the word is out your business will develop and grow as it should. Keep up the good work and once again thankyou and well see you on the next slip
It was interesting to hear about the marina development. We could be interested in occupying a berth when the development opens.
