  • Banged Up Props, But Back on the Water for the Weekend!

    I want to express my appreciation for the timely and professional work done to my boat – thank you very much. The damage occurred at a busy time for your operations and yet you got us back up and operational very quickly. Thank you for nice work – greatly appreciated.

    The boat runs great, and the decal lettering looks nice. Enjoy the summer!

  • Wonderful Awlgrip Job!

    I would like to thank you and your paint crew for the wonderful Awlgrip job done at KYC on my Blackfin 38 convertible this past winter. You surpassed my expectations! I could not have asked for a better paint job. The progress updates were great, but the final product is amazing.

    My family and I love the boat so much. Everyone who sees it remarks that it looks like a “new boat.” We now have the best of both worlds; our favorite 30 year-old boat and it looks like it just came off the showroom floor!

  • 5 Stars!

    The Kingman Marina is one of the best in Buzzards Bay. This a great harbor to stay in prior to going through the Cape Cod canal. There are 2 ways into the harbor, one from the north and one from the south. The way in from the north is a bit longer but the preferred way. Keep your eyes on the depth sounder and don’t cut any marks or you will surely run aground. Fortunately the bottom is mostly sand. Friendly, helpful staff. In 2016 Moorings cost $50 /night which includes launch service which runs until 9 pm on week days and 10:30 pm on Friday & Saturday. There is a full service boatyard which can perform almost any type of repairs.There is a great restaurant called The Chart Room. Good food & fair prices. Friday and Saturday night be prepared to wait for a table. It gets very crowded.
