Here at Bottoms Up Marine Services we will take care of all your boat repair & maintenance needs. We also do bright work and varnishing, bow thruster work, thru hull work and underwater metal services.
We hauled out in the Port of Port Townsend initially for a mandated insurance survey but stayed on the hard for two weeks to do some work. Our hull has a Coppercoat bottom, which washed off easily (no barnacle growth on the hull in 5 years). But our running gear needed attention. We scraped, sanded, and ground the struts, rudders, props and shafts down to bare metal. Joe and Jimmy at BUMS (who were doing work on the boats next to us) offered us great advice and use of their tools – even though we were doing everything ourselves! They were always available to answer our many questions and offered to save us money on bottom paint and prop spray. We finally were getting to the point we were running out of time, so we hired them to do the painting and spraying. They did everything they said they would, on time and on budget! (And we know it was done right…) We recommend Bottoms Up Marine Services very highly, and are hoping to have them paint our hull next winter – as we definitely want that done professionally!
