Not a Great Day

I guess today was my turn in the barrel. An ex-sailor decided to move his new to him Nordic Tug 37 out of his slip to the fuel dock. He had absolutely no experience with the boat. We are side tied to a floating dock and he was in a slip across the fairway and perpendicular to us.

We were sitting on the settee when suddenly my wife screamed. I looked up through the portside window and saw the Nordic Tug barreling toward us. He t-boned us big time. I'm feeling a little upside down too.

BTW, that "thing" sticking out is the stainless rub rail that was pulled away. Anyone suggest a great yard in Stuart Fl to accomplish the repairs?

Sorry for your misfortune.
Look on the bright side; You get a mid-season renewal of the varnish and you don't get your hands dirty

Ouch, Howard. Major bummer!

Either the Rybovich-Spencer yard or Michael Rybovich Yard does some of the best work around. Not too far down at Rivera Beach or Palm Beach Gardens. I just like to walk around their yards. Beautiful work.

Good luck.

Sorry to hear that Howard. Glad no one on either boat was hurt.

Here is where you need to go. It is up the St Lucie. They will get that back to new.

Take a ride over there and talk to them. They are impressive.

Must have put a sizeably shameful ‘ding’ in his stainless steel bow plate. Hope your boat gets fixed before his!

Truly unfortunate. Looks like it was a pretty good thump.

Gregg Burdick at Stuart Yacht is the guy I use. I don't think you can find a more honest or experienced boat repair yard.

As othersd have indicated, I'd recommend ACY as most convenient, but Rybovich as well. They can both do an incredible job.
