More features, talk right to marina staff

I love the ability to filter by an entity, store my boat and cc info so I don’t have to keep repeating it, and I love that this works at so many marinas. Mom & pop, municipal, as well as Suntex, Brewer, SafeHarbor, etc. LOVE the ability to chat with staff rather than play phone-tag or have to search through emails to find our last communication. All in one place. Really great.

Nantucket Boat Basin

We were not pleased with this experience. By far the most we have spent for a berth at a marina and felt that it was a push you in and push you out machine. We arrived and were made to hold in the channel for over 45 minutes while staff handled other boats only to learn when we arrived that the marina was understaffed. I ended up loosing my bow thruster for the docking procedure due to using it so long in the wind in the channel. Then when we asked to delay our departure by an hour or two were made to feel like this was a major ask. I was told that they had a reservation for our berth. We left to take a mooring right in front of the dock that we had and saw that no one ever used it when we left. We left with a very bad taste in our mouth.

Over complicating a phone call

This app does nothing to make the reservation process easier, by using this app they have added a step. This product serves the app developer not the customer. If the marinas did not insist on using it I would delete it and never look back. Gone are the days of talking to the Dock master and knowing you have a slip, knowing you can get your boat in the marina, knowing that you don’t have to wait 24 hrs to have a confirmation. It’s too bad because it has also made the marina less likely to pick up the phone and talk to the clients who pay a premium for dock space. Total garbage and bad for the marine industry.
