I had my boat restored at River City Boat Works and they did a great job. My boat has been in my family for a long time and it was important to find a good shop to do the work. The owner was very good about keeping me updated on the the progress and had me visit at several stages of the restoration. The boat turned out beautifully. Thank you to you and your crew!

These guys are HORRIBLE!
I took my boat to these crooks to repair the damage I inflicted on it hitting something submerged on the river. Nicolas Parker the owner/extortionist said he could get the job done in 3 to 4 weeks, depending on how fast the insurance company did their thing. After 3 weeks these scam artists hadn??t even touched my boat beyond the estimate they prepared for my insurance company. This is where it all went terribly wrong. I dare asked head thief and owner Nicolas what we could do to honor his 3 to 4 week time frame? This liar/con man blamed the delay on the insurance company (the insurance company did their inspection, processed it and cut a check in 3 days, they were great!) and said it would take another month. Then he shouted my time frame was unrealistic, which was really his time frame and said you could come pick up your F#**#@! boat. I told him I didn??t want to do that but 2 months was unreasonable. Of course, he replied with, you can pick your F#**#@! Boat in the morning. I agreed that would be better and said I??d be there when he opened. Nicolas presented me with a bill for $1365.00 for estimate time and $175.00 a day storage fees and told me if I didn??t pay I wouldn??t get my boat back. $175.00 a day storage? Are you kidding me? When I pointed out the work order I signed didn??t have any charges I might be responsible for on it he proceeded to write the $1365.00 on it and said ??it does now? and slid it towards me. I had to pay this thief to get my boat back $1365.00 in one dollar bills. When He pulled it out to the front for me to pick up it was filthy back to front with all the seats and other parts stacked in the open bow almost to the top of the tower. He didn??t even have the boater decency to keep it covered or the business ethic to at least put it back together. My profile picture is of the boat when I picked it up. To add insult to injury, when I took it to a reputable shop they said River City Boat Works could not have possibly done the job for what they quoted. Two different opinions stated Nicolas under estimated the job by at least $1800.00. They both agreed Nicolas would have to have thrown a patch on it and use recycled parts to accomplish his estimate. The next time I see Nicolas Parker will be in small claims court.
Be advised! This is the most unprofessional and shady business you??ll ever run into. The owner Nicolas Parker is incredibly smug, arrogant and stupid. He committed fraud right in front of me, he has to know I have the original work order. What a DUMB #*#!!
Be sure to yelp him under ??Norcal Marine Services? (now out of business) that??s where him and the rest of his cronies were ripping off boaters before he re-emerged as River City Boat Works

They were the worst we ever had. It cost us out the #$%^ and had to have someone else fix the problem.

WE would let our boat sink before we use them again.

I called several other places before I chose River City Boat Works. They had the best prices and the fastest turn around time. The owner Nick is very knowledgeable and easy to work with.

I was entertaining some visitors from out of town in my boat. As we were heading down the river we hit a huge floating log. My propeller got completely mangled. RCBW was able to get me back on the water with a reasonable price in a matter of days. I was able to take my guests out before they left town again. They really saved the day for me! Gratefully yours!

The people at River City Boat Works were great! They were very informative when explaining the problem with my boat and and even found a crack that if gone unrepaired would have cost me much much more down the road....I mean river. They were a pleasure to do business with and I wouldn't trust my boat to anyone else. Thanks River City Boat Works!!
