I used them a while ago, and while the work they did was acceptable, the final invoice they submitted to me was roughly 8 times what they quoted for the work they did.

Here's the deal: 22 Boston Whaler- Haul out, new bottom paint, replace ONE thru-hull lining. Quote (including parts and materials) was $550-$650. This estimate was confirmed once the boat was out of the water.

When they said the boat was ready I assumed I would be paying no more than $650 SINCE I DID NOT ALTER THE SCOPE OF WORK. When I arrived they gave me an invoice for $5,600. And they refused to release my boat until I paid the entire amount.

Truly unbelievable for a neophyte like me.

No wonder boat ownership has a bad rap... too many land pirates.

Its their unethical business practices and low ball quotes to get you in the yard that has me writing this negative review.

If you own a money tree, AND do not mind a business trying to renegotiate an agreement after the work as been done without prior authorization, then by all means, patronize Dricoll's on Shelter Island.

I had my boat bottom painted and prepared for shipping at Driscoll's. The dust from the bottom paint stained my boat and I was assured by Bill Cambell that the stains would be removed before the boat was shipped. They didn't even attempt to clean the boat. As for the prep for the move, they disconnected the hydraulic lines and let the fluid drain throughout the boat, left the screws, bolts and parts all over the boat, and ripped the material on the helm chair removing it. Now that I am out of the area, Bill will not call me back>

We had our boat hauled at Driscoll's and were very satisfied. My husband supervised the work, which included installation of a bow thruster, bottom paint, and various minor maintenance. The work was very professionally done. The yard is spotless. The prices were high, but not outlandish.
