Reviews for Owl Creek Boat Works
Excellent Service, 2017-05-04
Captain: , San Antonio Texas (76)

We were traveling to Palmetto and had some problems with our DC Charging System. I called Cliff and they agred to check it out. When I arrived they met us at their dock along with the Technician (Paul) who was going to do the work and began diagnostics immediately. Within an hoour and a half they had the alternator along with the voltage regulator out of the boat and off to their altenaator shop for diagnostics. The shop determined that the alternator was fine and we needed a shunt for the amp meter along with a new voltage regulator. They ordered the parts overnight and installed them the folllowing day. Fixing this problem in a little over 24 hours was beyond my expectations and their rates were very competitive too. I would recommend them highly to anyone. It is by far the best yard experience we have had in 10+ years of cruising.

Had cutlass bearings replaced and other issues addressed. Work was done on time and professionally as promised. Would return for other work if needed

Professional, Prompt & Courteous, 2016-03-01
Captain: , Southport, NC (637)

Stopped here to attend to a warranty issue on our Northern Lights Genset. They were waiting on us and assisted with docking. The promptly assigned a technician to the job and he was on the boat in 10 minutes. Everyone was helpful and professional. We were on our way in less than 2 hours.

Our harbor host in Cape Coral has recommended Owl Creek to several boaters over the years and has had nothing but positive reports.

Extortion, Slow and Shoddy , 2014-05-22
Captain: , Delaware City, DE (73)

Charged $3,000.00 to true the prop shaft ($200 job). The criminals dragged it out for two weeks to justify charges. On launch/bill presentation day the yard manager brought an assault rifle into the office. And the 8.5 hours of labor they conjured up left the boat with too little grease on rudder post and short stuffing flax coils. Finally, a hundred miles offshore two of the four bolts holding the rudder on dropped off. I've since had several local boaters echo my dismay with this yard. Owl Creek is a nightmare not soon forgotten.

Ideal stopover, 2012-09-27
Captain: , charleston (761)

We kept our boat at Owl Creek for over a month. Bottom paint and hull repair was performed to perfection. We were happy with everything about Owl Creek. It is a great hurricane hole also.

Top Notch Yard and Service, 2012-05-08
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (555)

We have hauled out in plenty of yards over the past 30 years and have to rate Owl Creek as one of the best, if not the best yard we have experienced. Nelso their carpenter is top drawer, and everyone is experiejnced and nice. Their 150 ton travel lift made our 46' Grand Banks look like a toy. Also, their painter is about as fine a craftsman as you can find anywhere. We would highly recommend this yard to anyone who wants the best for their boat.

We had Lifes2Short hauled here for an insurance survey. The guys were right there to haul us out when we arrived. Very friendly staff!
