sailboat maintenance and repair

  • Horizon Marine Service Company - 619-702-8500
    • Gary Kowal has been taking care of my boat for 20 years - fast, fair, and an unbelievable wealth of info
  • Discount Marine (Avalon) - Desi Jones - 310-625-9862, VHF Ch 12, 16
    • Some kind of boat problem in Avalon? Give Desi a call - mechanic, diver, Captain


  • Memo's Custom Canvas, Chula Vista - 619-427-0605
    • Guillermo and crew did lots of the canvas work for H&S Yachts and I am really happy with his service and my custom bimini

marine surveys

  • Jarvie Marine Surveyors - 619-977-7992
    • George Jarvie has been surveying all types of boats since 2003 - not only does he really know his stuff, you should see the salvage sailboat he rebuilt from the bottom up. Have him do a condition and value survey before you buy the boat and you'll know what you're getting into!

fire extinguisher annual maintenance

  • Golden State Fire Protection - 619-501-1715
    • Their mobile unit will come to you at your marina for extinguisher annual service and maintenance. At $19.95 per unit, this service saves you time and money over the price of just buying a new one. Call them for pricing and discounts
