new name, some dock repairs, same old shit. i was up this weekend to check on my boat, damaged from the launch. hopefully that gets taken care of but i won’t hold my breath. tried to reach the manager at the office but it wasn’t open at 9:30am. hopefully this year is better but it’s starting off horribly. if it stays the same it will be my last year here after 12 wonderful seasons, we have made many friends however with the rate increases and lack of services and a manager who is never available it may just be time to move on.
having stayed a season here, i can tell you i’m happy to have moved on. the reason i went here in the first place was the manager i talked too over the winter. she was great, however the child who took over didn’t listen to anyone and his true colours came out as the summer went on. unfortunately a marina with so little amenity’s should be on the cheaper side of things. however they expect top dollar with giving nothing in return. they need to hire staff that can actually look after the marina. the manager can’t handle the responsibility and spends most of his time listing to one or two customers. i suggest you stay away, we moved to a marina that literally has everything and they were cheaper. i wouldn’t even suggest a transient mooring here. you’d be better off at stat port or krates
this will be short but sweet. Anthony needs to go, he’s the worst kind of manager, the girl before was at least honest and did what she could. he told everyone he fired her, but she was still doing emailing and billing. he was a ghost all summer. he hired some new mechanic who says he winterized boats and hadn’t. i’m not sure what if any changes will happen next season but it won’t matter we are not returning. I HIGHLY SUGGEST TO STAY AESY ASLONG AS ANTHONY IS THE “MANAGER” he never returns phone calls and the office is never open. ice every second weekend and no amenities on site.
this place is a dumpster fire. ownership doesn’t care about it at all. docks are awful, the kid running the place can never be found. either gone with his girlfriend or just sleeping till noon. the pump out never worked, the driveways were awful, the power never worked properly. paid for 30 amp but could not run my air conditioner. everywhere else i went it was fine. d dock got some gravel this year but no one else did. the kid saying he would handle things never did anything. they raised the rates by 100% to some boaters but others got discounts. if i were you i would stay far away from this place.
you can’t give a no star review which is unfortunate, since that’s really what this place needs. let’s start with the lack of service. this “mechanic” steve they have, what a complete waist of space he is. besides lying to customers about what’s wrong and over charging for work not preformed, he leaves a mess everywhere he works. there was another mechanic but i never met him, heard good things but apparently he left too. you have the option of using bridgeport. i highly suggest if your at this marina that’s the mechanical team you use. the mechanic seems lost that’s there now. the manager - or 20 something year old, is forever to busy to answer his phone or return a phone call. unless it’s to one of his “favourites”. he’s always gone on weekends with his girlfriend on there boat from D dock. sometimes he’s just to busy with the guy at the end of d dock to do anything. it explains greatly the special treatment that area of the marina received. he has no business being and sny management position. trying to get ice on a long weekend was impossible as he was out at the island with his girlfriend and family. the docks are awful. no attention or real repairs are being done. bandaids everywhere you look and are continuing today. it’s. a shame for a place that has that potential. facility’s are non existent, other than bathrooms which are a throwback to the early 80’s, however the septic system in the back slips was almost overflowing one day i noticed on my walk. fellow boaters said it had been like that for almost a month. the grass was not well kept, the pump out was not working well, no fuel offered. this place is a dump and has horrible staff and that’s putting it nicely. would not recommend anyone to even stay one night.
