Roger Lake - Santa Rosa, CA

Hey Jimmy, thanks so much for the great dry rot repair and out drive rebuild on my 1988 Ski Sanger. I came to you when I first purchased the boat from Craig’s List and you showed me what dry rot problems my new boat had but you did it in a way that was honest and kind. I trusted you because of the way you explained the needed repairs. Other boat repair shops tried scare tactics and said things like: “I wouldn’t put that thing in the water the way it is. Your whole transom is about to fall off” and other real exciting news to a new boat owner. You on the other hand, after a thorough inspection, told me that I could get through the summer and then gave me a quote that was hundreds of dollars less than two other bids and was in my price range, (the previous owner denied any dry rot and I ended up threatening to take him to court which caused him to give me some of the purchase price back). I took your advice and enjoyed it over that summer and then brought it to you. You pulled out my motor and out drive, tore out my old transom and fit a new one in with new stringers where my motor mounts and rebuilt my out drive. You took your time and did all the repairs right the first time. I’ve enjoyed the boat for 4 seasons now with no problems. The out drive is quiet and goes in and out of gear perfectly. Because of your attention to detail, I have sent my son-in-law and his Malibu skier to you as well as numerous other boat owner friends and they all have been extremely pleased with the work you have done. I continue to recommend Ace Marine and I appreciate our friendship as well. Roger A. Lake, RAS, CSC Admissions Department Manager Drug Abuse Alternatives Center Turning Point Residential Program

I've been boating on SF bay and the ocean for about the last 30 years, and also did search/rescue on the bay for about five years. Since I take my family out on my boat and I've seen lots of boating mishaps and disasters I am very particular about how my boat is serviced. In my younger days I fixed a few corroded motors and rotted floors so I've also learned a few things about saltwater and moisture problems. About a month ago I dropped off my 21' cuddy/cruiser so they could remove the motor while I rebuilt the floors and transom. They were fast and professional. I finished the floors and transom and yesterday I dropped off the boat so they could mount and align the motor. Today I picked up the boat and was delighted with the work. They exceeded my expectations. The craftsmanship was excellent and they did all the right things like sealing the fasteners and double-checking everything. They even cleaned the motor before putting it back in, so it's literally gleaming. My trailer had old weathered tires and one tire went flat when they were moving it. They put on a complimentary wheel/tire as my trailer did not have a spare. I got a peak inside their new shop and it's huge. They have a very large indoor area that is fully equipped. There were lots of nice boats inside their shop and several expensive looking fishing boats in the yard. 5 Stars

I have owned 6 boats and have been through many dealers and shops. I needed some work done on my 23 ft boat and trailer and decided to try Jim at Ace Marine since he was close to where the boat was stored. What a pleasant surprise! Jim was very professional and was able to work with my budget and timeline, he even was able to pick the boat up for me. I had the boat bottom prepared and painted, the trailer completely reworked, and some gelcoat repair done. First, it's nice to find a shop that can do all kinds of work, thus saving me time from going shop to shop. I was able to communicate with Jim by phone, text, and email. He was very prompt in responding. And finally, the work done was second to none. Jim also emailed me pictures of the progress of my boat. He even worked through the weekend to make sure the job was done! Overall, it was a very good experience. Thanks again Jim. 5 Stars
