As our days get shorter and the nights get cooler, we are reminded of the work we need to do to get our boats ready for winter. Whether you trailer, store in a rack, lift, stay in the water or have the boat stored on land, FIRST CAPTAINS is ready to assist you with all your winterization needs, repairs and or maintenance. FIRST CAPTAINS is a complete mobile service. This means, we will come to your home, marina or your yacht club with all the materials to assist you with any work at hand, or…in your absence, we’ll just “GET-R-DONE” for you. We are licensed and insured. If we need to move your boat there’s no problem. We work on behalf of you. As you know, FIRST CAPTAINS covers all facets of your boating needs, including: electrical (12/110 volts), electronics (trouble shooting and installation), mechanical (gas and diesel, outboard, inboard/outboard, inboards), sanitation and plumbing (manual heads to vacuflush), underwater work (zinc replacement to cleaning or replacing propellers), fiberglass repair (grazing, stress cracks to deck delamination and hole repair), painting, bottom repair (blister and barrier coating), interior work (specializing in “Teak and Holly” vinyl flooring, corian counter-tops, custom wood working). However, right now the #1 issue we should be thinking about is WINTERIZATION.

If you want FIRST CAPTAINS to assist you, or handle the winterization process for you, then give us a call or complete the “WINTERIZATION RESERVATION FORM” below. You may also email your request to: Either way, I will respond to confirm with you on dates, time, materials and approximate cost. I would appreciate your prompt response to get you on the schedule for the work ahead, as our winterization schedule fills up quickly and we do many. For this, I am grateful. For your convenience, we do accept credits cards for payment. At FIRST CAPTAINS, we look forward to serving you and all your boating needs.

In addition, as a licensed Captain, we offer transportation services by water in the event you wish to have your boat moved to another location for the winter. You may plan to go South for those winter months and if you do, NO PROBLEM. We’ll help assist you in the travel or we’ll just take it on down South or up North for you. Either way… NO PROBLEM.
