Default ATTN North East boaters, great glass/paint guy

Just thought I'd share a fantastic experience with a new glass shop located up here in Southern Maine, near Portland Maine.
I got my boat out of storage a couple weeks ago and decided to have every paint nick/gel ding repiared (not that there was many!)
I dropped the boat off last Thursday, got a call last night from them telling me it was done and ready to pick up. Stopped by this morning and I was floored. Perfect paint match, so good that you can not tell where the repairs were done. I could not be happier with the job.
As an added bonus, the bill was quite a bit less than I expected to pay!

If anyone is looking for some paint/glass work I HIGHLY recommend this guy!

Its a great feeling when someone does above what you expected. Anyone know someone like this in Northeast Florida, I need some things done.

-Just got the boat home. This guy does very nice work. Here's a few pics, too bad it's a cloudy day.

Nice, what year is that TG? Is it warm enough to boat in Maine yet? I'm not making fun because I am from CT, but I went on vacation in Maine one time in July and it was still too cold to swim.

Biggus, that is great info. I'll add these guys to my if-needed rolodex. How long have they been doing glass work?

-gotime, the boat's a 1989. It's a labor of love for sure.* I spend way more time just tinkering than actually using it** *The weather up here is getting nice now. Although I have not had the Cig in the water yet, we've used our Pachanga a bit. I'll have the TG in the water for Memorial Day weekend.
-techman, Steve's been in the glass business for years working for others.* He's now on his own in a nice location.*We've been hearing the bad too much,* there are some really great guys in the field and they when they do a good job I like to give them the recognition they deserve!*
