Craig did the fuel tank replacement on my Downeast Cutter 38 a few months back. If you know anything about boats of that vintage, you know that the fuel tanks are perhaps one of the most difficult projects you can take on.
Craig gave me a solid quote, at a price was more than fair. Additionally, Craig is an excellent communicator, he explained things well. Of course the project hit some snags, but nothing I wouldn’t have expected when working on a boat that was built before I was born.
Overall, I was impressed with the quality of his work, and would hire him to work on the boat again.Patrick T.

Super busy 4th of July weekend and he made the time to squeeze me in. He wasn’t able to help me but referred me to some one who could. A really nice and helpful guy. I will definitely use him or try to if I have any other mechanical issues.Nicholas L.

My agency, California Sail Diving, has been using Coleman Marine for the past 2 years. Craig has done all our engine mechanics on both of the engines on our older catamaran and he’s very proficient about keeping us running properly. We have never had a problem or been stranded; he definitely ‘floats our boat’. He is very knowledgeable and professional in his line of work, which we prefer to leave to an expert such as Craig.Carla W.

I love my mechanic! I hired Craig to look into a ACMY that was being auctioned that I was interested in buying. There was a small engine fire that was confined to the starboard engine, so I needed a professional unbiased and private pre-purchase inspection. With his advice and guidance, I have been able to purchase and repair a really great vessel.
He has been my best asset, helping me to rebuild the engine room and most every system on the yacht. He has introduced me to many cost savings with out cutting corners. His mechanical ability is second to none.
There are many opportunities for a mechanic to take advantage of a boat owner; Craig has always been up front with me with regards to the costs, and he has always been honest and reliable. If Craig says he’ll be there, he’s there. If he says it broke, its broke. But more importantly if he says its fixed, its fixed. I feel like I hired a mechanic, and he grew to become my friend. I can say with out any reservations, give him a call and you will have a friend in the business.Tom F.
