Customer Testimonials

Keith,

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the work that all of you did on my American Tug, Mojo Workin.
Since she has been back home, she has gotten a great many complements on how good she looks, and several people have actually told me that they thought I got a new boat.

Everyone asks where I had the work done, and I am happy to give Blackline my strongest recommendation.

Thanks,

Byron SkubiMojo Workin

Thanks to you and all of the others at Blackline for your usual first class, and friendly service. It has always been a great comfort to my Dad, and now me, to be able to trust implicitly in the work that you do and the care that you take with Windrush II. To our family, she’s much more than just a boat.

Keith thank you for the Gel coat work… flawless! Hard to believe how you repaired it – you are magicians!

It is rare to find the combination of individual talent, creative team work and artisan level of skills in a single group of people – which is what Blackline Marine is. I had a unique problem with the Nick Jackson davits we put on our Grand Banks 42′ Motor Yacht two years ago and the new “dream dinghy” we just bought. The threefold increase in dinghy weight showed the lack of needed structural stiffness in the stern construction when we first hoisted the dinghy.

The davit system, though properly sized, did not have the structurally rigid base it needed to anchor to. Brent, with a member of each team within Blackline – metal fabrication – fiberglass – rigging all brainstormed both on the spot and then throughout the process to custom design and fabricate a system of stainless steel internal framework that transferred the load to the stringers internally and freed the load from the stern fiberglass.

Throughout the process the teamwork element was constructive, positive, and inspired with a group of talented fellows who truly enjoyed their work. The positive corporate culture evident was a very high testimonial to me of a well managed and effective company.

Friendly and obliging while creating a functional masterpiece solution – I could not ask for more.

I enthusiastically recommend the Blackline team for their high high quality of innovation and finished product!

Thank you Brent, Paul, Matt, Vern, Jeff and Joel.

Erik & Mary Ann Bentzon, 42 Grand Banks MYAquavit

I am highly recommending Blackline for the work your company did on fixing Caribbean Blue, and for your management of the project. You really made our rather traumatic experience very much easier to accept and see that it would all be taken care of with ‘no worries’. Feel free to use my name if you require a referral to a client wishing one.

Again, thank you for the “no worries”. You may not realize but just talking with you, your knowledge, expertise and reassuring manner made it so much easier facing the issue at hand.

Angus Whitmore

Brent, I want to thank you for doing such a fabulous job on the mast, and please thank Jeff and the rest of your team. I really appreciate your attention to detail. It looks great!!

Don Gillingham

Hi Guys, all your painting/hull polishing stripes etc contributed to ARGONAUTA I winning the Concourse d’Elegance first prize at the Beneteau Rendezvous 2011 last weekend at Thetis Island. Thanks!

Hugh and Heather

A sailing acquaintance asked me Friday evening my thoughts about work we’ve had done at Blackline. I said it’s like a credit card advert – the peace of mind we get from having it done right is priceless.

Greg McCallum

I Recently had Paul from your rig shop install a Raymarine anemometer and fish its cable down the mast. He arrived at the time we had agreed to, had all the tools required… and had a plan of how he would complete the task. When plan “A” couldn’t work he immediately had a new plan to solve the problem. I found Paul to be very efficient, knowledgeable, confident and pleasant to have worked with. I was impressed! Thank you Blackline and thank you Paul.

Graham Rogers

The workmanship on all of the work done on “Malaika” was absolutely first class. To say that we are pleased is an understatement. We would be pleased to recommend Blackline Marine to anyone who wants to have first class work done.

Dorothy and Brian AngusSY Malaika

The repairs look to be excellent and the boat was left tidy and clean. Thank you and your team for the great effort – I would certainly have no concerns about recommending Blackline to anybody.

Peter Acorn

… the seep that has been with us since new is gone. Good job and you were right as to where it was located. I had been given poor analysis in the past!!

Bill Surbey

Thank you so much for your excellent work and guidance. We are very grateful to you for letting us be so involved in the process…. You guys are by far the best in the business! Thanks again for everything.

Rodney and Kate

Many thanks to Pamela, Carrie, Keith, Mike, Cameron and everyone else who transformed our “Tenas Towah” – you treated our humble little boat like the QE2, and now she looks wonderful.

Susan Mayse

Thank you so much for the excellent job you and your staff did… a huge improvement over the original installation.

Grant Ballantyne

It’s nice to know that in these difficult and disappointing times we are having with the business world, that there are people and organizations whose ethic and professionalism are so admirable.

Jack Fiore

Dear Keith and the crew at Blackline Marine. I thought you would like to know that all the good work you did on Neuromancer has stood the test; Especially the bow-plate and twin anchor rollers which have done some serious holding in big winds and seas. Thanks for the good work!

Robert Burn

Brent, Just a note to thank you for the terrific service yesterday. The job of putting Bandit’s mast in was not only efficient, but completed properly. A compliment I very seldom have the pleasure of giving.

Fred Davies

I just wanted to follow up and give some feedback after bringing my Epic surfski in for repair last week. I really appreciated how the whole process went, right from the initial phone call with Matt, the quote, and the great work done by Andrea. Thank you very much Matt and Andrea for patching the hole in the boat and making it such a painless process. I also appreciated that the quote was accurate to the amount of work that ended up being required. Nobody likes having a damaged boat and it is nice to have the repair process be trouble free. The boat looks incredible, nobody would believe I had a repair done. T

Ben Garrett

Seriously, we couldn’ t be happier. Definitely let me know if any potential clients ever want to chat about Blackline’s attention to detail, technical capabilities, or customer focused business practices. I’d appreciate any chance to give you guys credit for a job so very well done
