As a result of their maintenance, the starter shorted and all power went out on the trip from Pitman to our dock (thank goodness the wind was aft and we had a sail) and a hose had been dislodged causing the boat to leak water. As the boat was leaking we called and they said they didn't have dock space. Then we wrote a very nice, logical letter explaining the problems they caused. In response to the letter, they called and cussed and yelled at us. Not at all the response I would expect from any reputable business. In fact, I was shocked and really couldn't believe their response. I'm still in shock. Why did they even bother to call, other than they must be having an incredibly bad day and needed to blow off steam. Not a way to treat any client. I'll certainly never use their services again nor recommend them again to other boaters.
