Reviews for Fortman Marina
Great staff, aging marina, 2016-06-30
Captain: , San Francisco (36)

The wooden docks are in rough shape. Many of the dock fingers are damaged and need floatation repairs. Addionally the wood of the docks, while structuarally sound, are rough and will leave splinters on anything that rubs over them (bags, lines, etc).The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Any reported maintainance issues (electrical socket repair, dockbox repair) were accomplished quickly.The restroom (as noted) is a bit of a walk from the majority of the slips.They advertise some of the cheapest rates in the Bay Area, and they aren't empty boasts. Most of the slips are dual fingered, which is very nice.

I personaly like this marina. The docks in some areas are old and twisted up but service is good. bathrooms can be a bit of a trek if your on the outer docks but still for the price, its not bad.
