We Are Here to Help in the Aftermath of Sandy

We were lucky to have little to no impact from Sandy on the Upper Hudson. Our thoughts are with our customers and industry contacts to the south who are still dealing with the aftermath of the storm.

We realize that many of you have not had power or access to the internet, but we are hoping that this email will reach you with our simple message… We are here to help you cope with the damage to your boat. At this critical time we are able to offer:

• Experienced staff to service and repair your boat including engine, drives, electrical systems, fiberglass and canvas repair
• A safe place to store your vessel until you can return to your home port
• Assistance with estimates for your insurance company
• Help in moving your boat to our facility by truck if needed

Please contact us if we can be of any assistance
