I gave FabBoats a five star rating. I had them replace the fuel tanks in my 31 foot Contender. Considering the level of difficulty, including having to cut and remove a large section of the deck, I believe that they did a very nice job. But what impressed me the most was the level of interest that the owner took in making sure that I was fully informed on a continuous basis as to the progress and status of the job.

John and his team did an outstanding job restoring my 2004 polar cc. Fair, honest, and well communication throughout the process. My boat had severe gel coat cracks all over. All said and done, it looks like a different boat. I highly recommend John and his crew! Thank you guys for taking care of me!

John and his team at Florida Boat Works did an awesome job renovating my '78 Mako 21. Closed in transom, replace stringers, to other custom modifications... They didn't disappoint. Most importantly they were always accessible. I highly recommend them.
