Reviews for Snug Harbor Boat Works and Inn
Yard Manager Craig, 2015-07-13
Captain: , OldHatt (77)

The manager of this boat yard, Craig, may be one of the most off putting and obnoxious people I have ever encountered. He comes complete with bad customer service and an attitude. Too bad because the location is great for those of us who live on or near the beach, but as long as this guy has anything to do with the operation then I will steer clear. Too many other boat owner friends have told me the same thing. I can't imagine why the owner has this guy working for him.

Not the most organized boat yard, 2014-06-24
Captain: , St Petersburg, FL (65)

Came for a simple bottom job and left with a bent roller furler cracks on my backstay tangs, stress marks on the bowspirit support plate and a headache keeping any eye on the work...

I scheduled a bottom job a month in advance and a week prior I called to see about changing the type of paint. I was told that they had cancelled my appointment but that they could still get my boat in and would add me back to the schdule. So that Sunday evening I dropped off the sailboat at their dock as we discussed and came in Monday morning to hand over keys. I was greeted with - why is there a boat here, there is nothing on the schedule? I should have left at that point, but they offered to still do the bottom job and the boat was already there.

The boat yard called the next day because they couldn't figure out how to start a diesel engine (they weren't aware that there was a glow plug to heat the engine first). I was a bit surprised as they advertise doing engine work and this is a pretty common thing for diesels.

Fortunately the contractors they brought in to do fiberglass work were outstanding and helpful - the reason I gave 2 stars and not 1.

I was told it would be under 5 days to complete things, but a week later they still weren't ready to put it in the water. I had to go on travel which angered them as they wanted to free up space on the yard (even though the boat wasn't finished) but they relented to await my return 2 days later. When I returned from travel, the boat still wasn't ready to be put back in and my wife who had visited that day to keep an eye on things, was told that they woudn't be able to launch it for two days because they had fishing boats coming in to unload. So I was a bit surprised when they called to ask the next morning why I wasnt there to pick up my boat and threatened to charge me for storage of an unfinished boat. Finally I told them I would be by that afternoon to pick it up and was told there was no way they could launch until the next day. Wanting to be done, I agreed to go out of my way to be there next afternoon.

The next morning came and they were in such a rush to launch they called first thing to remind me they were launching it. Around lunch I received a voicemail that said they couldn't launch because they needed to clean the boat as it was dirty from all the work. Feeling concerned, I left work and when I arrived found that my bowspirit was snapped up with my bobstay busted in two. They evidently hit the boat with the lift which caused the damage. I noticed a small crack in one of my backstay tangs to which they offered a quote to repair and the plate holding my bowspirit on was showing stress marks from being bent which they claimed was normal. Only after they replaced the bobstay (not fixing the other two items) and I paid them to move on - did I notice my furler was also bent (guessing that is where the lift hit sending stress throughout the entire rigging). I called and never received a return call back. They did a great job on painting the bottom but the damage to my rigging and cost that I'll incur to fix wasn't worth it.

Launch and hauled my 37 twice here, 2013-02-16
Captain: , Jacksonville Florida (417)

First when I had everything trucked down from up north, they worked with me to get it off and into the water, and had a good connection with a crane operator to hoist the mast. Everything worked well, the place was easy to get into and out of via water. When it came time to truck it across the state, I used them again, and had another good experience with them. There's a marine parts store next door for gotta-have-and-didn't-have stuff. If you have to pull your boat and you're on this side of Pinellas county, do it here. Don't know anything about the 'Inn'.
