Boating & Fishing


Robert D: “Just wanted to give a big “Thank you” to everyone involved in my engine repair this weekend on B Dock. A water pump failure on the starboard engine was the issue. Mark, Artie, Jeremy, Alex, Dale and Matt. Without their tools and knowledge the repair would have never happened. And a special “Thank You” to John the DeRivera Park director / B Dock, dock master who not only drove around the island looking for a specific tool, found it and drove me to the location, but also then came back and picked me up. All this happened during one of the busiest weekends of the year. I’m forever in your debt.GREAT dock and GREAT people!”

Cindy D: “Another great boating season and again B dock is and was the best place to be. John, Tom, Jordan York and Jackie, Tom and I would like to thank you for another great year. This year especially proved interesting and put all of you to the test of how fast you can get a boat off the wall with having to move 3 boats out of the way first. Record time for sure. I didn’t see it because I was a little preoccupied, but I have been told many times from many people how awesome all of you are. So to our B dock family thank you so much for doing what you do best, when we needed you the most. And for an update all is clear Dr. says my heart is good. So yep this Canadian will be back to bug you next year and for many years to come. Thanks from Tom and Cindy ‘Just Add Summer’.”

Donna S: “Thanks for a great week. The crew of B Dock is outstanding. It was a crazy stressful week and weekend and you all handled it with smiles in your faces”
