Another GREAT REVIEW on Active Captain
"We have been in a lot of boatyards in our 30+ years on the water and I have to say that my experience here at Pelican's Perch ranks up at the top. It is small enough to be able to have that personal family-like atmosphere while still providing the professional services needed. Prices are excellent.
The yard has a basic ships store with items you might need at reasonable prices and Bill is eager to add wanted items to their stock. Patsy Stokes, the office manager made me feel as though we were long time customers from the first time I spoke with her on the phone. Bill Guttmann, sales and marketing specialist was professional and there to help in any way possible whether it was helping us find contractors that could provide services that we needed to finding a laundry close by. David Hairelson, the yard supervisor, has a wealth of experience and was always available, helpful and did a superb job with the yard's NEW 50 ton travel lift. (This might have been the first time I wasn't nervous when having a boat hauled out.) Danny was a big help and a life saver.
There are many onsite licensed and insured contractors and contractors that serve the yard with services such as fiberglass work, electronics and systems troubleshooting, fabricating, painting, detailing, canvas work, mechanical and general maintenance, rigging, and sail repair. Chip McFeron, one of the yards contractors, was fast, professional, and reasonably priced when he replaced a cutlass bearing and switched out our prop. Keith Swank, ships carpenter, helped us to procure some teak...I only regret that we weren't here longer for him to do some wood repairs for us. DJ with Zern Rigging, another contractor, was promp and efficient.
We would highly recommend this yard and intend on returning whenever it is possible and we are in the states. Again thank you so much."
