Baltimore, Maryland
Not resolved

In early July I contacted Scandia Marine for a quote to have my new boat bottom painted. I spoke to Marty, one of the owners, who quoted me $19.50 per foot for painting and $13.50 per foot for hauling and blocking. The boat is 21 feet.

On July 21 I delivered the boat by water. It was hauled and blocked. On July 26, 2016 I received a written estimate for the work - $2281.24. I had clearly told Marty the boat was never kept in the water and had never been painted. I was told by Rob that the $19.50/ft quote was for repainting only and not for first time painting. After a week and a half with no satisfactory explanation for the discrepancy in price I took the boat after paying $283.50 for the hauling and blocking fee.

I have received other quotes from local marinas which are significantly less than Scandia.

I am clearly disappointed with my treatment at Scandia. Integrity is most important in business.

I find them lacking and would not recommend them to anyone.

Attached: quote received after the boat was hauled and blocked:
