Reviews for Lockwood Boat Works
Good Guys, 2015-12-17
Captain: , Bay Saint Louis (161)

Had to leave my boat for 3 weeks , rates for short term were good, marina & docks nice, location is walking distance to west marine, and few good places to eat, had both stuffing boxes repacked and generator checked, staff was fair and friendly people, would certainly go back next time in area.



Best Yard in the bay for any kind of repair, 2014-02-02
Captain: , Keyport, NJ (80)

This is the best yard in the bay for repairs, but be ready $$$.



Great Repair Facility, 2013-06-12
Captain: , Britt, Ontario (691)

If you are in this area and need any kind of repair, this place is great! We had a diesel issue and they quickly diagnosed and made the repair. It is a boat yard not a marina; the docks are new since Superstorm Sandy and the washrooms and showers are nice and clean. At $2/foot for dockage we were very pleased.



Full service yard, 2012-03-16
Captain: , NY, NY (104)

Lockwood's is a family owned full service yard that will do it all. First rate work that gets backed up with the whole family's reputation. The real test is that they are very accomodating even if you are not a "regular" customer. The approach to Cheesequake Creek should be studied carefully, especially if you are deep draft, as there are some skinny flats to the east of the channel. Be prepared to maneuver in close quarters with possibly strong currents if you get stuck between the highway bridge and the train bridge.



Storm Refuge, 2011-08-27
Captain: , San Francisco (130)

I was on my way from RI to Maryland and had to find a place to haul out for hurricane Irene. No other yard would take a transient, but these guys said "show up and we'll haul you out." They must have had 40 boats lined up to pull, but they were very professional and handled each boat very well. My power boat ended up well blocked, twice as many stands as usual and all of the stands chained. I was impressed with their attention to detail under such circumstances.



Pricey marina up a narrow creek, 2011-01-29
Captain: , Stratford, CT (250)

This family-run marina specializes in sailboats. They are well known in the area for their mechanical and rigging expertise. However, they are quite expensive. Nice slips, very nice toilets and showers. There's a HUGE chandlery on the premises which has everything you might need as well as nautical knick-knacks. There's a West Marine about 200' away too. They sell diesel and gasoline. The marina is on a branch of Cheesequake Creek which is narrow has a very stong current. You must pass through the Rt 35 bridge (height perhaps 40') and a RR bridge (height 4').



they did the right thing - and on budget, 2010-11-03
Captain: , New York, NY (200)

Had to stop here on our way south for some rigging work. The work was finished on budget, but although the estimate included a sea trial, I never got one. By the time I got to Cape May (120 nm away) I realized that things were not quite right. Bill Lockwood arranged for someone to meet us and finish the job. All's well that ends well.
