Default Suggestions for a good boat yard in the Annapolis Area

Purchased a Pursuit 28 CC and looking for a reliable boat yard in the Annapolis/Pasadena area that can complete the following improvements before I ship it to St John.

1. Apply anti fouling paint to a never painted clean hull.
2. Install a new Simrad Autopliot, interfaced to an existing Garmin 7612
3. Replace the bilge pumps.
4. Install a manual Sureshade to the rear of the top.
5. Detail the boat stem to stern including the bilge areas.
6. Shrink wrap the boat for shipping to the islands.

Work will need to be completed before the middle of November.

All recommendations or thoughts appreciated.

Thank you

If you want the work done in 5 weeks total you need to pull the trigger 6 weeks ago!!

I use Jeff Abell at Abell marine/gingerville yachting center. They should be able to do all of this. They let me use my own detailer as well.

I was just about to recommend gingerville as well. They would likely bring in someone to do the electronics...just call BOE and have them coordinate with Jeff at gingerville.

Barnacle marine services has been doing work out of there this year. They could do all that work except the electronics. They do really good work; good attention to detail.

Good luck. I had my boat in Pasadena for a couple of years. By and large, they all suck. Give Mike a call at Pasadena Yacht Yard. I think he's a member here.

Thanks for the recommendation T84a. I would love to be able to help and we do take a lot of pride in what we do. Send me a pm and let’s talk about it.

I took my boat to Beacon Light Marina for the first coat of bottom paint. They did excellent work and I couldn't be happier. I feel that the first coat is important because you need a person who can strike the waterline right from scratch. It's not rocket science, but you want a shop that commissions boats rather than just a bottom painter. If someone messes it up it will bother you for a long time.
