Fiberglass Work??

Boats been sitting at Mikes Marine Ways for almost three weeks and no end in sight! He lost his main fiberglass guy due to surgical complications and is very short handed. Any other recommendations??

    He had my boat 3 weeks ago when his new guy stopped showing up to work. He was planning on doing both of our pathfinders at the same time so he only had to buy gelcoat once. I picked mine up after I heard the news. I’ve been able to fish 3 times in the last 2 weekends. Supposed to try back in a couple of weeks. Hopefully he’ll be up and running soon, he does good work. If you get in a hurry and don’t mind a drive, professional fiberglass in Panama City does excellent work.  Good luck, let us know if you find anything.

    Well he still has my boat and I am going to holler at him Friday and find out his progress! Please note folks that this is not in anyway to bad mouth the work they do at MMW but I was just not expecting to leave my boat for over a month for a few fiberglass issues! If one was not below the water line I would have already picked it up thanks to a broken trailer bunk I could not see as it was submerged when I was putting boat on trailer!

    I hope he’s been able to get you taken care of. It seeed like the perfect storm of employee issues hit. His main guy was out with a major intestinal surgery and his new guy just quit showing up.  Hope he gets up and running soon, and if he did yours he’s probably ready for mine.  I was going to call next week
