I cannot stress how important it is to fully research your marina before entrusting your boat to them. Hop O Nose are well below standard when it comes to service, safety and customer care. Our mast was stepped up by them in September 2019 and nine months later we are still working with our insurance company through the effects of the damage they caused when they dropped the mast from 30 feet in the air straight onto our new 50 foot boat. Their practices are outdated and in my opinion dangerous. We are lucky that no-one was killed that day. I have seen other similar posts elsewhere about other damages caused by their work and I would not recommend anyone to use their services.
Beware. I had my mast stepped at Hop-O-Nose for our trip up the Hudson. Shawn and crew built a cradle for the mast that failed the first day out. It came crashing down, nearly missing landing on my wife, and while Shawn admitted FULL responsibility for the accident, I was paid $1,000 out of MY pocket for repairs. I will NEVER set foot in that marina again!!!!
