Captain: , Prospect NS (103)

I had to go to work for a month and leave my wife and children on the boat in a secure facility. Not only was it secure the people were very friendly and services were readily available. Great Experience.

Hidden gem/Gold River Marina, 2012-05-17
Captain: , Bonne Bay,Newfoundland (41)

I rented a slip during a trip from Portsmouth,NH to Bonne Bay,Newfoundland.I was there for 9 days,the marina is a small place tucked away up the Gold River.I have nothing but good to say for the service and hospitality I received.The office manager[Cindy] and Darren [Yard manager] went out of their way to help.The yard is currently being upgraded with cosmetics but the important things are already there like skilled people to do any repairs from mechanical to hull work.They have a few moorings and slips to cater to transients.Diesel is available on site.
