Comment: Took a while because of the permitting process but eventually happened. Then only took a day and a half for boat lift and piling installation. They recommended a very good electrician. Pleased with their work. Would recommend.

Comment: Above Board did a great job: excellent workmanship, attention to detail and used good materials. Scheduling was sometimes a little difficult given the workload imposed by Hurricane Ian, but everything worked out well. Scott and MaryAnn were always responsive when called and I will use Above Board for ongoing maintenance,

Comment: Above Board Marine is professional, courteous and communicative. They show when they say they will and the guys work full days getting the job done. I would highly recommend Scott and his team to replace or repair your dock or install your new lift.

Comment: OK,It is an often I write a review but I felt absolutely compelled to share the wonderful experience I had with Aboveboard Marine. I had an unusual situation where the dock had to be built at an angle. They came in did their due diligence and put together a dock that was beyond my expectations. Scott and Marianne were not only incredibly professional but responsive and personable. The crew worked hard and got the job done in two weeks needless to say the dock is absolutely beautiful they put all the subcontractors into place regarding my awning, my lift, plumber and electrical, they did it all without me having to worry about anything else. I would highly recommend Aboveboard Marine above anyone else.

Comment: I needed a piling replaced on pier. First company I called told me it would be about a year to get around to my pier and that they would have to tear it down and start over. They had not even seen the pier. I was going to wait for them to come out and give me an estimate but they never showed up. So I got on line anf found Above Board Marine. I seen their ratings were outstanding.I called them and got an estimate the next day. They were at my house within a very reasonable time frame and did the job in one day. They replaced 2 pilings and I had them wrap the pier and lift pilings. They didnt have to tear down the pier like the first company in Englewood I called told me. I am very happy with the company, their employees and the work they did. Definitely 5 Star company.Glad first company never showed up.

Comment: Our dock is absolutely beautiful! Scott and Maryann, along with their crew, Chris, Logan, Dave, and Mike were such a great group of people to work with. Their professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail was outstanding! We enjoyed having the crew here and watching the daily progress as well as understanding how they build a dock. They go above and beyond with the quality of the material and attention to detail. We love the finished product and will enjoy our dock for many years to come. Would recommend Above Board Marine to anyone considering building a dock or replacing an existing one. Thank you Scott and Maryann!

Comment: Scott, Maryann and their crew (Jason, Logan, Shawn, Ben) were absolutely a pleasure to work with on our new/replacement dock. I was on the phone the morning after hurricane ETA (Nov. ‘20) made a mess of our 35 year old dock. Scott promptly came out and gave us an estimate. Since quite a few docks in the area were compromised, I was given a time estimate when ABM could get to the build. I was Ok with the timing and in the end, the dock was completed on time and on the price that was quoted. (Even after experiencing some extra time relocating pilings, lumber prices soaring and Charlotte County holding up the permitting process) The quality of the work is impeccable. We used Titan decking and couldn’t be happier. It looks great, we will never have to seal/stain, bare feet in the hot summer temps, perforated so tidal surge won’t lift deck boards, and no splinters. All fasteners used are Stainless. Joists are double through bolted and pilings wrapped. I can’t thank Scott, Maryann and the crew enough. I’m extremely happy with the end product.

Comment: I’d recommend Above Board Marine to anyone who wants a very well constructed dock; built on-time; and at a good price, by professionals who you can count on for everything. That is very hard to find people that you can say that about these days. Scott, Maryann & their staff are very good people also.

Comment: I live in South Gulf Cove. I wish Scott and MaryAnn were the builders of my house instead of just my dock /lift because they were professional, meticulous, timely and offered great advice! Bids from two other companies: one that wouldnt answer questions concerning their product or the details and one that wanted 30% down before doing anything! Scott and MaryAnn were so easy to work with. If you want a dock built, Scott and MaryAnn at Above Board Marine should be your choice. Craftsmanship and value.

Comment: I recently upgraded to a larger boat and as a result needed to upgrade to a larger lift. I wanted to do it right and spent weeks researching companies, cost, and lifts. I also wanted to use a local company and a family business if I could. It all came together with Above Board Marine and Deco lifts. I was actually sent to Above Board by another local lift company who was overwhelmed by work. Armed with estimates from several other installers I met with Scott and went over exactly what I wanted. He offered some really good recommendations and I settled on a Deco 14,000 lb lift, and Above Board to install it. I felt like Scott was straight with me throughtout the whole process and always gave me good solid advice. Scott and his team were total professionals throughout the build, including when we hit rock and a bigger drill was needed. Scott had the contacts to get it done and get it done quickly. Scott had briefed me on the possibility of that happening before we started , so I wasnt blindsided by the additional cost. In the end I got a great lift, well installed, and for a fair price. Scott s team followed up to tweak the lifts settings once installed. Im so glad that I went with Above Board, in fact Ive asked them to come back to lengthen my dock too. Great company, great work ethic, highly recommend.

Comment: Scott, i would like to take this time to thank-you tremendously for getting my job done on my dock. You where true to your word at getting it done in a timely fashion, and that you came back right away when there needed some tweeking done on the lift. Thanks again for coming to my aid after I just purchased a brand new boat. I was in dire straights when my new boat did not want to fit on the lift. Your guys did a great job on upgrading my lift to accommodate my boat.

Comment: If you like quality work, attention to detail, and people who actually get back to you and communicate timelines, etc. Above Board is the right team for you. I am a very picky, fussy customer and they worked with my demands for exact pile placement until we got it how I wanted it. You cant do better than these guys, and the price was right, too!

Comment: I had two docks that needed a few new pilings and new stringers. Scott came by and gave ma a quote that was quite a bit lower than his competitors. His crew knocked out the job quickly and efficiently and were top notch. I was really blown away by his service. The only hold-up were the permits which they have no control over. Scott is down to earth and wont BS you. He will work with you to make sure you are truly happy with his work. For me , he is the only way to go in this town.

Comment: I cannot say enough about ABOVE BOARD MARINE. First off, they answer their phone, unusual nowadays, second, they show up at the agreed upon time and date, thirdly, they are PROFESSIONALS. We have a 66 foot dock that needed to be torn down and replaced. Scotts team did a fantastic job. It only took 4 days to complete the job and not one piece of wood or garbage was left on our property. They are clean and efficient and within the price of other quotes. If you need anything done with regard to docks, boat lifts, etc., ABOVE BOARD MARINE is our recommendation. We have lived in south gulf cove for 20 years and this company is the best we have had the pleasure of using.Mike and Sue Betancourt

Comment: Scott I was sold on you removing and replacing my 40ft dock when I realized how important craftsmanship was to you. You and your crew exceeded every expectation my wife and I had. Everything from the design to the finished product was Above Board. If anybody is searching for a reputable Co. I highly recommend Scott and his crew.Just a couple of points of craftsmanship, stainless screws on decking, every board routed to give a rounded edge, all pilings wrapped to keep wood worms out, overkill on all cross members, All stainless hardware, and so much more.
