The Dinghy Doctor, Inc


A mate and I had our '94 Quintrex Reef Hunter repaired by Peter earlier this week, and his service is nothing short of fantastic.

He booked us in on fairly short notice, got the work completed quickly and to a high standard, and was happy to freely give advice on multiple boating related matters.

His requested fee was unexpectedly low so I felt compelled to give him some extra so that I could be happy that his efforts were properly rewarded.

Cannot recommend him more highly!
With Rick as a captain, it can just get better and better.
