"I was looking for a swim ladder last summer (2009) and chanced upon their store. The staff bent over backwards to ensure that I had the proper equipment, and Roy fabricated a mount to allow the installation of the ladder on my boat - exceptional service! To top it off, I was also given a tour of a beautiful 65’ yacht currently under construction in their yard. I heartily recommend them." - Customer Review
